The Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea 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 is securing 300 homes, predominantly in W10 and W11, for former residents of Grenfell Tower and Grenfell Walk. Properties will be available to view on http://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.
