The Duke of Cambridge & Prince Harry visit the Support4Grenfell Community Hub

The newly established Royal Foundation Support4Grenfell Community hub provides support to the Grenfell Tower community. Their Royal Highness also visited Al-Manaar, The Muslim Cultural Heritage Centre, which was one of the first centres to respond to the tragedy on the night of the fire.

After the Grenfell Tower fire on 14 June 2017, The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry, like others, wanted to support the community in North Kensington.

The Royal Foundation, of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry, established Support4Grenfell Community Hub.

The hub is a centre point for organisations already involved in supporting the community to come together to provide additional mental health resources for the children, young people and families affected by the Grenfell Tower fire.

The Duke and Prince Harry heard how the hub provides a space for various agencies and community groups to continue working collaboratively.

Their Royal Highnesses met representatives from organisations leading the emotional support response at the hub, including Child Bereavement UK, Place2Be, The Art Room and Winston's Wish.

Many of these charities have been working with local partners, schools, community groups within Kensington for some years. The hub has allowed these charities to react quickly to scale up their local support in response to the tragedy, as others have done.

Aftwards, The Duke and Prince Harry visited Al-Manaar, The Muslim Cultural Heritage Centre, to meet members of the centre's community. Al-Manaar was one of the first centres that responded to the tragedy on the night of 14 June. Volunteers there co-ordinated other volunteers – and offered food, water, shelter and counselling to survivors of the Grenfell fire.

Al-Manaar continues to work with the families and residents affected to provide counselling, advice and a safe space.
