Grenfell Support


Immediately after and since the Grenfell Tower fire, Hestia focused on working with the bereaved, survivors and relatives of Grenfell, providing support where it is needed.

In partnership with the Central and North West London NHS Foundation Trust, we provided counselling support to the bereaved, survivors and residents, and to members of the public attending the Grenfell Tower Inquiry. Hestia has provided this support from the initial memorial hearings through each day of Phase One and Phase Two of the Grenfell Inquiry.

Our aim

Hestia's aim is to help ensure the Inquiry is a psychologically safe space for participants.

Our team of qualified counsellors have experience working with traumatised communities and have worked with the Grenfell community in various settings since 2017.

We aim to ensure that the emotional needs and well-being of all attendees are supported during the very challenging testimony being presented and received.

We are able to provide our services in the first language of most Grenfell community members attending.
