An account of Kendall House from 1980

I wrote the other day about the drugging of children at Kendall House, a children's home in Gravesend run by the Diocese of Rochester, between the 1960s and 1980s.

It turns out that the home was described in the book In Whose Best Interests? Unjust Treatment of Children in Courts and Institutions, which was written by, amongst others, Laurie Taylor and published in 1980.

No 2 Abuse has some extracts.

The Church, Police, Social services, DCSF and Government have all ignored the abuse and to date have done nothing about the abuse the girls suffered. The church know the others wont touch it so they sadly hide behind that protection. The church should be more critical of the Government, Police and Social services for their serious failures in dealing with the severe abuse of so many girls that has affected our children.
