Hestia’s thoughts go out to all affected by the fire at Grenfell Tower

We’d like to extend our thoughts to all those affected by the tragic fire at Grenfell Tower in West London this morning.

Hestia delivers several services in the area, but we can confirm that none of our physical buildings have been directly affected.  We are working to ensure that the necessary local emergency measures are in place, but foremost to ensure the safety and well-being of both our staff and service users who live and work in the area.

We are also liaising closely with the Local Authority and can confirm that our two Day Services in North Kensington are open as usual.  Extra staff have been arranged to help provide additional support to those who usually attend and who may be affected.

If you are concerned for loved ones the police have set up an emergency line.  Please call them on: 0800 096 1233
