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.
