Support in Islington for survivors of non-recent child abuse

Islington Council is extremely sorry for the council’s past failure to protect vulnerable children. We know that those who were abused continue to suffer today.

The council today is a very different organisation, and protecting children from harm is our top priority. We are committed to supporting survivors of child abuse - please see below for some useful contacts:

  • Contact survivor support for requests to access your records relating to your time in care, help to access specialist counselling; and help with welfare or housing-related matters

  • If you are concerned an abuser may still be working with children refer to the support coordinator. If you wish to report a criminal offence: call the police on 101

  • You can also contact Islington Survivors Network (an independent organisation, separate from the council, which supports and campaigns for survivors). See the ISN website

  • For more information on the support available, please refer to the document in the 'Useful documents' area
