About Us

Welcome to Justice4Grenfell

Justice4Grenfell (J4G) is a community-led organisation, focused on the long-term goal of

obtaining justice for the bereaved families, survivors, evacuated residents and the wider

local community, collaborating with representative organisations.

J4G was set up a few days after the Grenfell Fire disaster and officially launched on June

19th 2017 with a silent walk. Together with many other local groups and individuals, J4G

stepped into the void left by the authorities, to try to meet the urgent needs of those

impacted. Our work continues because of the on-going failure of the authorities to respond

adequately to the disaster. J4G’s ultimate aim is to ensure that such an event never happens

again.

Objectives

These are the campaign’s core aims.

  • Develop a community led, public interest campaign to hold all responsible authorities and individuals to account (including prosecutions) for their failure to provide safe homes, for the death of loved ones and a lack of proper and effective response prior to, during and after the disaster. These authorities include Kensington Tenants Management organisation, local and central government, the companies who supplied the dangerous cladding and insulation materials placed on the building in the process of refurbishment and other organisations who were responsible for the safety of the building.
  • To ensure that what happened at Grenfell Tower on the 14th June 2017 stays in the public consciousness, so that there remains pressure for systemic change – Grenfell must never happen again to any other community.
  • To remember and honourthe names and lives of men, women and children who lost their lives in the dreadful fire and the impact of the carnage on survivors and wider community.
  • To co-ordinate informationso that justice can be attained without delay and in an open and transparent manner.
  • Besides campaigning for truth, accountability and change, Justice 4 Grenfell wants to build broad alliances with a range of campaigning organisations and social justice movements
