Grenfell Tower Fire

Trustees and staff at Kensington and Chelsea Mind are shocked at the terrible news of the fire at Grenfell Tower.

The Council's major emergency plan was activated earlier in response to the fire and local authority liaison officers are working directly with emergency services at the scene.

The psychiatric and community teams from Central and North West London NHS Foundation Trust are working with the Emergency Services and the Council to support people affected. Parkside CAMHS (Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services) - in the area of the fire - is open for routine and walk-in appointments. You can call them on 020 8383 6123.

An emergency rest centre is open at Portobello Rugby Club, Walmer Road, W11 4EY.

An emergency contact number has been set up for anyone concerned for loved ones, please call the casualty bureau on 0800 0961 233.

For residents who are displaced due to the fire please call 020 7361 3008.

At present the council's focus is on supporting the rescue and relief operation. The Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea website will be updated throughout the day. 

Kensington and Cheslea Mind has been contacting service users who may be affected by the fire to ensure they are safe and supported and we are available to the Council's major emergency planning officer to help in any way we can over the days and weeks.
