Kendall House was a children’s home for young girls in Gravesend, Kent. The home was run by the Church of England who agreed to conduct their own internal investigation into the home in 2015.
The girls that were sent to the home allege that they were forcibly given harmful medication in excessive doses. An independent investigation by the BBC discovered that numerous women went on to have children with birth defects which may be linked to the medication administered at Kendall House. A number of women also allege that they were sexually abused by staff members while resident at the home.
The Church of England first agreed an out-of-court settlement in 2010 with former resident Teresa Cooper, who suffered the treatment described above. Numerous other former residents have also obtained compensation following this.
