Faith groups responding to the Grenfell Tower fire filled a void left by Kensington Council, a report published today says.
Religious organisations were able to respond amid the chaos and ‘stood out’ for their response against the ‘widespread’ view that the council had failed residents, it claims.
‘Churches, mosques, synagogues and gurdwaras all stepped up to the plate, responding practically, emotionally and spiritually to a moment of pain and confusion,’ says After Grenfell: the Faith Groups’ Response, by the religious think tank Theos.
