Following the shocking events at the Grenfell Tower in Kensington earlier in the week, I wanted to reassure all Grand Union Housing Group tenants that we take fire safety very seriously. We do not have any high rise properties and only have a couple of medium rise buildings – none of which have cladding similar to Grenfell Tower.

As a Group we continue to adhere to fire safety regulations and have a cyclical programme of checks that we undertake.

We are also active members of the National Social Housing Fire Strategy Group and have provided input into the latest National Fire Chiefs Council’s Specialist Housing Guidance document.

The thoughts of everyone at GUHG are with all those affected and we are doing what we can to help in any way possible.
