Helping women survive domestic abuse

Image of domestic abuse

26 October 2018

Camden and Islington NHS Foundation Trust showed its commitment to women early in 1995 when it applied for funding and developed a women-only crisis house as an alternative to hospital.

Drayton Park Women's Crisis House has continued throughout this time and has proved to be a successful alternative to acute admission at C&I for women who would otherwise be admitted. It provides a unique service in many ways, for example it has a women-only staff team and can admit children with their mothers. It has a national reputation and is one of the early examples of a trauma informed model of care for women.
