We want to take this opportunity to remember all of those people, and to share our support for Grenfell United – the group made up of survivors and the families of victims – who are still fighting for justice 5 years on.
In addition to pursuing justice, Grenfell United continue to be steadfast in their campaigning to ensure that everyone is safe in their homes. As one of hundreds of housing providers across the country, we are working in solidarity to ensure the same.
Since the Grenfell disaster we have prioritised deepening the relationship with our customers to ensure that their voices are heard on matters relating to the quality and safety of their home. We have also continued to maintain our focus on health and safety as a corporate priority including reviewing fire safety measures, new training for our fire risk assessors and an independent audit of our fire safety measures.
The devastating night at Grenfell is a moment in history that should never have escalated so severely. Whilst justice is still being sought by so many, we remember all those living with the impact of the fire, and those who paid the ultimate price.
