The Grenfell Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA) has been refreshed during the final phases of the Council’s five-year Grenfell Recovery Strategy.  The initial JSNA Report Journey to Recovery was published in 2018, the year following the tragedy. This refresh is a continuation of the 2018 Journey to Recovery, with a review of the pre-existing recommendations, Grenfell services and the overall impact on the health and wellbeing of those who continue to be affected by the Grenfell tragedy. In doing so, it has drawn on a range of evidence and insights, to help those involved with recovery to shape their support, reflecting on:

  • The characteristics of the communities prior to and following the tragedy.
  • Comparative analysis of data on Grenfell and the surrounding population up until present day to understand both the nature and scale of the impact.
  • The voice of people in the community on what matters most to those who have been affected and what is important in recovery to them.

The purpose of the JSNA refresh is to build a better understanding of the ongoing impact of the Grenfell tragedy on survivors and bereaved and local residents. To support the planning and delivery of the next phase of support collectively with the community, we aim to ensure that the right offer is in place for those most affected by the tragedy, now and in the future. This document summarises some of the evidence gathered since 2018. It sets out an initial view of what this evidence means for the longer-term needs of the community, focusing particularly on the challenges ahead in the next phase (2024-28).

We would like to hear from you.  If you have any comments or feedback on the JSNA please send to PublicHealthDepartment@rbkc.gov.uk by Monday 24th June.
