Pioneering research centres move into Hendon’s oldest dwelling

CATS and EHRAC now based in the former home of the Church Farmhouse Museum after Middlesex University undertakes vital restoration work on the Grade II* listed building

Church Farmhouse

Hendon’s oldest dwelling is now the new home for the Centre for Abuse and Trauma Studies (CATS) and the European Human Rights Advocacy Centre (EHRAC).

Situated just a short walk from the Middlesex campus in north London, the 17th century Grade II* listed former home of the Church Farm Museum had fallen into disrepair following its closure in 2011, but has now been lovingly restored by the University.

CATS Co-director Professor Julia Davidson said moving across the road from campus to the Greyhound Hill location will foster the development of both research centres.

“We are delighted to be based in this historic building which provides an ideal location for our research exploring abuse, victimisation and wellbeing in real world and digital contexts, which has an international, national and local focus,” she said.

“The move will enable us to extend our dissemination and continuing professional development, as well as to engage more effectively at local level.”

Over recent years CATS and EHRAC have developed international reputations in the field of social justice, tackling hard-hitting issues such as cybercrime and human rights abuses.
