Six months on, The Kaleidoscope Plus Group is continuing to support the victims of the Grenfell Tower disaster.
On June 14th 2017, the fire which occurred at 24 storey high Grenfell Tower in North Kensington, claimed 71 lives and has scarred those who survived the blaze and live in the local area.
Our Chief Executive, Monica Shafaq was heartbroken at the time of the tragedy and made a £500 donation on the charity’s behalf to help those immediately affected, however, she vowed that the charity would do more to help those affected.
“An event like this is likely to have a huge impact on the emotional wellbeing of not only those directly affected but also people across the country due to the nature and scale of the tragedy”
The charity has been able to second one of its employee’s to Central and North West London NHS Foundation Trust to complement their service offering therapeutic support to the victims of the disaster.
Monica said: “We recognised that many people were in need of specialist emotional and psychological support and with this being one of our areas of expertise, it was important to us that we found a way to help out.
“I’m delighted that we have been able to extend a helping hand by seconding one of our member of staff will now be able to provide full time structured and professional support in conjunction with the Trust”
The Kaleidoscope Plus Group will be providing this support for at least the next 12 months.
