The Duke of Cambridge and Prince Harry visited the Support 4 Grenfell Community Hub in North Kensington, a partnership of charities offering a range of support, counselling and advice for children, young people, parents and families affected by the Grenfell Tower fire.
The Support 4 Grenfell Community Hub was established by the Royal Foundation of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry to provide a dedicated space for various agencies and community groups to continue working collaboratively, to reach out to other statutory and voluntary organisations, hold meetings and organise counselling and supervision. There is also space for children and families in the community to come in and speak to the organisations represented.
The Duke of Cambridge, who has been Royal Patron of Child Bereavement UK since 2009, met with organisations offering bereavement and emotional support to the community. Ann Chalmers, Chief Executive of Child Bereavement UK said:
“It is great to have The Duke of Cambridge and Prince Harry visit the Support 4 Grenfell Community Hub, to meet family members who have been directly impacted as well as some of the organisations involved in providing therapeutic support to families affected by the fire at Grenfell Tower. This visit will undoubtedly help highlight the great needs of those who are facing the devastation of bereavement in this community, and the support that is available.”
