Grenfell Tower update

Since the early days following the Grenfell Tower fire, the Evening Standard Dispossessed Fund and The London Community Foundation have distributed public donations for the immediate need to overcome hardship suffered by survivors of this tragedy. We have already distributed £3.2m, over half of the £6.2 million we’ve raised. At least £2m has gone directly to the survivors, with each household allocated £12,000, and £1.2m is being distributed to the next of kin and injured through The London Emergencies Trust.

We continue to work in partnership with the Charity Commission, Grenfell United and all survivors of Grenfell Tower to ensure that the remaining donations raised by the Evening Standard Dispossessed Fund and The London Community Foundation are distributed to meet the needs of those affected quickly.

We have also raised a further £700,000 from Artists for Grenfell. These funds were received from the sale of the charity single ‘Bridge Over Troubled Water’ where a large proportion of the total will be made available to the survivors of Grenfell Tower early next week.
