Kendall house in Gravesend, United Kingdom was closed in 1986. Unfortunately after it made the lives misserable for a lot of girls.

Kendall house Gravesend Kent. This happened to us too in the uk. A home office psychotherapist was doing it to us. All our children were born with birth defects and all the kh girls who lived got ill with a serious unknown autoimmune illness in our 40s. I have all our records of the abuse, severe overdosing drug logs, cover Ups documented in files. It was first exposed in 1979 and the uk government mps refused to help the abused children in the care institutions and said it was a medical problem not a government problem. It wad exposed again on a tv documentary in 1980 and the government still refused to stop it. I was sent to kendall house in 1980 by Wandsworth social services. I was there 3 years. I was locked in a small room for over 160 days isolated, massively overdosed with 11 psychotropic drugs for 3 years every day and sexually abused in that room. The psychotherapist sent me to stone house mental hospital with dangerous severely disturbed patients as punishment if i alerted anyone. Kent police have not investigated the abuse at kendall house and lied publicly. My mp Eric pickles has refused to talk to me for 18 years and recently told his secretary to call me and tell me to drop it. I wont drop it. A social worker who witnessed the barbaric abuse and brain training called it ratamorphism. I have all the evidence fortunately. The gov are lying publicly and are making sure this abuse is totally ignored. Its still hapenning to kids in care today and I can prove it. The uk government are lying publicly and saying they dont do it but they are doing it. The children are locked behind closed doors and can not get help. They are screaming in silence here in the uk. My website is no2abuse and my book trust no one that I wrote because all those in authority ignored the abuse.
A television station later investigated and found 10 ex-residents at Kendall House had gone on to have children with birth defects after being forcibly given cocktails of drugs, including tranquilisers, during the 1970s and 80s.
It could not have been fun to be there as a teenager.
