Grenfell anniversary - information and support
Grenfell anniversary – taking care of yourself and loved ones
The anniversary period is a difficult time for many in North Kensington. Everyone will react in different ways, but the NHS is here throughout this period and beyond to support you and your family.
Marking the anniversary
Marking the anniversary throughout this pandemic comes with additional challenges. When thinking about how we mark the third anniversary we must do so cautiously particularly to protect members of our community we know are disproportionately impacted by Covid-19.
This years celebrations are being led online and you can join from home, here is the schedule we realise it's not quite the same but we will be together in spirit.
Local NHS and public health guidance has been published to support, you can read it here.
