Support for the Grenfell community – a quick guide to accessing emotional, physical and wellbeing services
The NHS is here to support all the North Kensington communities today, on the fifth anniversary of the Grenfell Tower fire – as well as afterwards.
As in previous years, we will be present at various venues across the community and supporting community events. Please come and talk to us if you feel you need our support.
Additionally, there are additional health services that have been put in place by the NHS to specifically support the individuals bereaved by Grenfell (children and adults), their families and the wider communities impacted by the fire in North Kensington.
We know anniversaries are difficult, so please don’t hesitate to reach out for support if you need it.
