The latest information we have from the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea Council shows that there is a total of 202 households from Grenfell Tower and Walk that need rehousing. To date 61 households have accepted permanent accommodation and 54 households have accepted temporary accommodation.

The Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea Council is working urgently to move all families affected by the Grenfell tragedy into temporary or settled accommodation at the earliest opportunity., The Department for Communities and local government is working to support the Council in achieving this.

For each family, we will respect their wishes and give them the time and space to make this transition at their own pace, and in a way that best supports them to recover from this tragedy.
