Give safely to support those affected by Grenfell Tower Fire
Official advice for the public when donating to those affected by the Grenfell Tower Fire
David Holdsworth, Registrar of Charities for England and Wales and Chief Operating Officer at the Charity Commission said:
We are saddened to hear of the tragic events in West London. There are many registered charities on the ground doing what they do best to assist those who have been affected. We are urging members of the public that wish to make donations to check that they give to a registered charity in order to best support those affected, and also importantly to check with those charities what support they need – whether that is money, time or other essential supplies.
