Rehousing residents from Grenfell Tower and Grenfell Walk

Kensington and Chelsea Council has announced a package of housing support to help former residents of Grenfell Tower and Grenfell Walk to rebuild their lives.

This package includes the fact you won’t be expected to pay rent or service charges until 1 July 2019. This will be the case whether you move into interim or permanent accommodation from your hotel. The same offer will be extended to council tax as well as core utilities – electricity, gas and water.

To support the move into self-contained interim accommodation or permanent housing, every adult resident will also be provided with a £300 per week transition allowance and every child with £150 per week for the first three months. This will then be followed by three months support of £150 per adult per week and £75 per child per week.

The Council has secured 307 homes, predominantly in W10 and W11, for former residents of Grenfell Tower and Grenfell Walk. Properties are available to view on homeconnections.org.uk

Housing officers will work closely with you to identify your needs and preferences. You will be offered a furnished home, and any moving costs incurred moving from your current accommodation to your interim and permanent homes will be covered.

Helping you move to a permanent home

We understand how important it is for former Grenfell Tower and Grenfell Walk residents to move to a suitable permanent home and that living in emergency or temporary accommodation for a long time has been difficult.

We made a promise that we would do everything we could to find you a permanent home by June 2018, and have now reached our target of acquiring 307 properties to make this happen.

We have produced a brochure which brings together useful information to help and support you with your move. It gives details about the financial and practical assistance you can get, answers the most common questions asked by residents, and includes a map of where all the 307 properties are located. It also shows some of the properties that were available to you at the time of the brochure going to print. This is just to give you an idea of the types of properties that we have acquired.

Almost all available properties are now ready to view on the Home Connections website www.homeconnections.org.uk

We encourage residents to take a look at the brochure and if you have any questions, or would like help in making this important decision, please contact your Key Worker or Allocations Officer.
