Grenfell Tower Update


Robs3

To all the incredible residents, neighbours, communities and organisations that have offered their kindness and support throughout this difficult time, thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

We have been receiving hundreds of enquiries from people who want to offer their skills and time to help the families affected, as well as working with volunteers on the ground who have been filling all the emergency centres with donations that they can't take anymore as there’s no physical room. The response from the community has been overwhelmingly wonderful.

If you still have items you’d like to donate, we politely ask for you to just keep hold of them for the time being; over the next few days and weeks more will be needed, but currently all centres are at their full capacity.

If you would like to donate money, please click on the following link: https://thekandcfoundation.com/donate/

If you would like to volunteer, at the moment each centre has their volunteers already co-ordinated, but as things start to settle, more volunteers will be needed to help plan for the future, so if you’d like to register your interest you can email The Royal Borough of Kensington & Chelsea at: grenfellvolunteers@rbkc.gov.uk.

Meanwhile, if you, or anyone you know has been affected by the events at Grenfell Tower and would like to speak to someone about it, we’re working with local organisations who have counselling services, so if you’d like to be referred, please email iuliana.dinu@vckc.org.uk or alternatively the Samaritan’s are always on hand to offer support on 116 123.
