As a landlord, someone very much involved in housing, I could not fail to be affected by the Grenfell Tower disaster in West London.
It raises questions to be answered including the old chestnut myself and many other private landlords raise: why do local authorities not always maintain their own housing to the same standards they set for private landlords? However, the priority at the moment is to help the victims.
The residents (and their immediate neighbours) of Grenfell Tower still need help. A wishlist has been set up on Amazon https://www.amazon.co.uk/registry/wishlist/118PVSCYUF46H/ref=cm_sw_r_tw_an_wl_o_G.tqzbXCA67Y3
or donations (any clothes, toiletry, bedding or food items) can be left at any of these locations:
221 W11 4EY
95 W11 4EQ
210 W10 6QY
More importantly, a crowdfunding campaign has been set up to help the victims now and in the longer term: https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/categories/emergencies/grenfell-tower-fire
