Remembering Grenfell – next steps to a memorial
The Grenfell Tower Memorial Commission (GTMC) has published a new report titled: Remembering Grenfell: Recommendations and next steps to a memorial.
The recommendations contained within this report reflect the last four years of work undertaken by the Commission to understand the Grenfell community’s wishes for a fitting memorial to all those whose lives were tragically lost in the Grenfell Tower fire in June 2017.
GTMC’s recommendations are viewed as an important and necessary next step in taking the community’s vision for a future memorial, and then turning it into a reality.
The report is available here and translated summaries can also be accessed here: Remembering Grenfell: Recommendations and next steps to a memorial | Grenfell Tower Memorial. An audio version is also available, read by community representatives Hanan Wahabi and Susan Al-Safadi.
Mike Martin, assistant director of the North Kensington Recovery Team says:
“We welcome the publication of GTMC’s report. We hope the recommendations contained within the report will help realise a fitting and lasting memorial for the bereaved families, survivors, Lancaster West Estate residents and the immediate community.
“Whilst this is a welcome move, we recognise that there is a great deal left to do. As we move towards the final design for the Grenfell Tower memorial by spring 2026, we appreciate there may be emotional distress caused along the way.
“We recommend anyone affected by this update to seek support from the NHS Grenfell Health and Wellbeing Service. You can contact the service by calling 020 8637 6279 (every day 8am to 8pm) or, if you require urgent advice, contact the CNWL Urgent Advice Line on 0800 0234 650 (available 24/7).
