Grenfell Tower Inquiry news

Welcome

Thanks for visiting my blog.

From 2011 – 2014 I lived in a beautiful apartment on the 21st floor of Grenfell Tower. On the 14th June 2017 I sat on my bed and watched it burn. Seven of my former neighbours died. I vowed to do what it takes to ensure we learn.

My commitment is to open dialogues and enquiries that will help us to collectively understand how to be more effective at dealing with the systemic issues at play. Whilst prompted by Grenfell the application is far broader.
