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.
Child Bereavement UK has been operating a bereavement service in West London since 2012 supporting families bereaved of a child. The charity responded to the Grenfell Tower fire initially by providing training support and consultation sessions for schools in the community. Having established a relationship with the ClementJames Centre in North Kensington, Child Bereavement UK is also providing training and individual consultation for their staff as well as support for bereaved children, young people and families at drop-in sessions. In partnership with Winston’s Wish, we are also running parenting groups and group support for young people on alternate weeks at ClementJames, and will be able to offer individual, couple, family and group support through the Support 4 Grenfell Community Hub.
Child Bereavement UK, Place2Be, Winston’s Wish and The Art Room are working together with local partners, schools, children’s centres and community groups responding to the needs of those impacted by the fire.
