Faith communities have been praised for their response to last year’s Grenfell Tower blaze amid calls to learn from the tragedy.

The distinctive ethos of faith communities enabled and encouraged them to respond with openness, hospitality and religious sensitivity to those in need, according to a new report marking the first anniversary of the fire.

After Grenfell, a new report from religion and society think tank Theos, examines what the diverse faith communities around the Tower did during and after the fire, how they were able to do it, and what the groups, and the rest of society, can learn from it.
