Almost one year on, the memory of a national tragedy at the Grenfell Tower continues to impact the community where 71 lives were lost. A new report published by Muslim Aid in partnership with Al Manaar Mosque, Rugby Portobello Trust, Notting Hill Methodist Church, Clement James Centre, Grenfell United and Grenfell Muslim Response Unit highlights the role of the voluntary sector’s response this time last year. The report unveils the contribution made by key faith communities who were at the frontline of the response, offers reflections shared from community based organization and
provides the voluntary sector’s recommendations on responding to a national disaster in a more timely and effective manner.
The report urges government to take more action to ensure the voluntary sector plays a pivotal role in its mechanisms to respond effectively to disasters based on the lessons learnt from the tragic fire last year.
Esteemed panel of speakers include Jehangir Malik OBE, CEO of Muslim Aid, Abdurahman Sayed, CEO of Al Manaar Mosque and MCHC, David Holdsworth, Deputy Executive Director of Charity Commission, and Clare Richards MBE, Chief Executive of The ClementJames Centre, who will talk about the findings of the report and reflect on the lessons that may be learned from the immediate and longer-term response to the Grenfell tragedy.
Each of the panellists from voluntary organisations led early response teams and continue to work with the Grenfell community providing support to help the community heal one year on.
