MTVH remembers Grenfell

14 June 2024

Summary: On the seventh anniversary of the fire at Grenfell Tower, MTVH's Chief Executive, Geeta Nanda OBE, has issued a statement in memory of those who lost their lives and all those affected.

Today marks seven years since the tragic fire at Grenfell Tower in West London in which 72 people died, over 70 others were injured and hundreds lost their homes. At MTVH, we remember those who lost their lives and all those who were affected by the events on that terrible night.

The utmost priority for housing providers, whether housing associations, local authorities, or private landlords, must be the safety and wellbeing of our residents. The tragedy at Grenfell Tower must never be allowed to happen again.

In the years since the fire at Grenfell a lot has changed. A raft of new fire safety regulations has been introduced and providers are working hard to put right fire safety issues. We’re continuing to work with our partners across the sector and with government to implement the full range of change needed to ensure that all the homes we provide are safe and secure.
