Islington Survivor’s Network

Islington Survivors Network
In the early 90’s Islington was rocked by a scandal of abuse in its kid’s homes. The victims of that abuse are still seeking justice and answers for what they suffered.
Dr Liz Davies was the social worker for Islington who originally blew the whistle on the abuse scandal. She left the council and since then has been working with survivors of the care homes, forming the Islington Survivors Network. Jo from CCRadio is one of those survivors. She spoke with Liz and Jane about the abuse and the work the Islington Survivors Network are doing now


The silence of UK’s opposition leader

Social workers warned Corbyn that child abuse was rife in his Islington constituency in 1992 ‘We’d been seeing so many 12 to 15-year-olds who were being sexually exploited, we could hardly believe it,’ Liz Davies, one of the five social workers, recalled this week
Corbyn never wrote to Davies, or telephoned, to acknowledge their meeting, or thank her for seeking to blow the whistle  source Daily Mail 02/08/2015

Mr Corbyn is not usually a an of few words, Maybe he like to explain his silence?
