Faith groups responded “rapidly, compassionately and holistically” to the Grenfell Tower fire, a new report by Theos says.
Churches and other places of worship should practise regularly emergency responses to tragedies before crises occur, which the report calls “preparation in peacetime”.
The report, After Grenfell: The faith groups’ response, published by Theos, a Christian thinktank, on Monday, examines how faith groups in North Kensington, London, reacted to the disaster. It says that at least 15 faith centres in the vicinity of Grenfell Tower helped.
