The Grenfell Recovery Strategy, which has been developed in partnership with the community, will be discussed by the Council’s Leadership Team on Wednesday 9 January.
The Strategy sets outs the Council’s plans to deliver on a set of commitments it made to local North Kensington communities last year.
The Commitments outlined three aims of recovery; to support survivors and those who were bereaved as a result of the tragedy to rebuild their lives; to facilitate a community-led recovery for the wider community and to help all those affected by the Grenfell tragedy to support themselves. You can find the full set of commitments on the Council’s website
Since July the Council has been co-designing a dedicated service with bereaved and survivors to meet their needs now and in the future. The new dedicated service acts as a point of contact for residents most affected by the Grenfell tragedy.
A shadow dedicated service has now been established with the full service up and running by April 2019.
The Creating Stronger Communities conversations which were held with communities last Autumn, identified 10 top ideas which residents wanted to see developed as part of the ongoing support for the wider community.
The Council held seven workshops and 14 drop-in sessions which were attended by 300 people. It also set up a dedicated website – all which resulted in 844 suggestions. Residents were able to choose the suggestions that they felt were most important to local communities. The Recovery Strategy outlines how these will be delivered in partnership with residents.
A community programme for the local area will also be delivered to ensure the Council is building on the existing strengths
and talents of communities. This will include a community leadership/development programme, a grants pot for local organisations and plans for community spaces.
