Hounslow Council has mobilised a team to provide support to those working on recovery efforts following the tragic fire at Grenfell Tower.

The council has linked up with others to offer support as part of a collective plan for local authorities to help each other out in a crisis. This includes support in managing and staffing the Community Assistance Centre, running a helpline, providing mental health and wellbeing advice, help and guidance on housing and temporary accommodation and coordinating donations.


They are also working closely with the voluntary sector and remain part of the ongoing liaison with the emergency services.

Chief executives and senior officers from Hounslow, the City of London Corporation, Bromley, Ealing, Harrow, Southwark and Westminster have stepped into leadership roles in the immediate aftermath of this response being triggered.

They are being supported by senior officers from every London borough and continue to work closely with Kensington and Chelsea officers.

Councillor Steve Curran, Leader of Hounslow Council, said: “As a borough we will look to provide support to Kensington and Chelsea where we can, along with colleagues from across London, so every effort is being made to support those who need our help at this difficult time.”
