How we help

We support survivors, bereaved families and the community to remember the event of 14 June 2017 and to keep the memory of their loved ones in hearts and minds.

Grenfell Anniversary

Each year the Foundation supports anniversary events. Including supporting private events for bereaved and survivors to come together, a large community vigil by the Tower, and the larger Silent Walks that significant dates bring.

Silent walks

Every month the community comes together for a silent walk. To remember those lost in the fire, support each other and to keep the campaign for justice in the public eye. The Foundation supports the walk and provides the local organisers with equipment they need to keep the walk safe, month in and month out.

Awareness

We work with survivors and bereaved families to keep Grenfell in the public’s mind during the ongoing Inquiry so that the lessons of Grenfell will be learnt and not forgotten.

18 months after the fire we supported those affected by the fire to come together and share their message of hope and change, in their own words. The video reached 3 million people.

Wellbeing

We support survivors and bereaved families to have time away from the area to have respite and to share quality time together, creating new happy memories as a family. We’ve supported Cornwall Hugs to continue their work providing holidays and sanctuary for affected families in Cornwall.

As the Inquiry continues, we’ll be working to give support to young people affected by Grenfell, starting with ensuring families with children can take some time away together during Phase 2 of the Inquiry.

Much of the work that the Foundation supports is behind the scenes for families, this includes paying for meeting space for large gatherings, transport for those living out of London to attend important events, additional equipment for support services to ensure families are getting the help they require and a range of other initiatives as requested by families.

COMMUNITY

We find opportunities to support small community projects that are bringing people together, as recommended to us by bereaved and survivors. Currently this includes:

Football training for community, bereaved and survivors each week.

Local events and smalls festivals, such as the North Kensington Youth Festival, which are organised and run by community members.

The Teit Ethiopian School which was set up by affected families, and now has 36 students attending every weekend. The Foundation provided IT equipment and stationary to the project to help get it up an running and we look forward to sharing the progress of the project in due course.
