Forced to sleep in cars, threatened with ‘intentional homelessness’ and still no money: Fresh hell for Grenfell Tower survivors with many denied £5,000 relief cash ‘because they don’t have ID’

Posted on 21st June 2017

Grenfell Tower survivors are being let down by the botched response effort to the horrific blaze, those helping them have said.
Nearly a week on from the tower block blaze that killed at least 79 people, some of those displaced by the fire have been forced to sleep in their cars while others have been prevented from claiming promised cash.
Some of those who lost their flats in the blaze fear being declared ‘intentionally homeless’ – meaning authorities no longer has a responsibility to house them – if they refuse to a move outside the area.

Social Housing Partner Jayesh Kunwardia comments on the lack of clarity over housing policy and the unfair impact of refusing temporary accommodation could have on Grenfell survivors.
