Harrow joins London councils working together at Grenfell Tower

Harrow Council is taking part in a cross-London effort to support the residents of Kensington and Chelsea borough following the Grenfell Tower tragedy.

The team from a wide variety of boroughs is leading on recovery and response and also includes central government, the British Red Cross, Metropolitan Police and London Fire Brigade.

Councils across London‎ are contributing significant resources to make sure humanitarian assistance is available to all those affected. Harrow social workers are among those involved in the effort to manage and staff the Community Assistance Centre; provide mental health and wellbeing support; and provide help and guidance on housing and temporary accommodation.

Harrow is also providing support at Grenfell Tower itself. Our chief executive is on site at the tower, working on recovery and remediation with our leading building control experts. They are constantly assessing the safety and stability of the building following the tragic fire and considering the condition of its structure as emergency services continue their work in and around the Tower. 

We would like to thank our residents for already contributing so much to the effort to support our fellow Londoners in need. If you would like to donate money to help people in need after the fire at Grenfell Tower, a Red Cross fund has been set up

The Charity Commission has issued advice for anyone donating to those affected by the Grenfell Tower fire to ensure that donations go to legitimate charities.
