Challenge

On the night of 14 June 2017, a fire engulfed the 24-storey Grenfell Tower in west London, killing 71 people and injuring many more. An entire community was destroyed. For many people, the psychological scars may never heal. Children living close to Grenfell Tower show signs of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), 9 months on, the NHS says. The number of sufferers are at the highest end of a range of expectations after comparing it to other tragedies such as terror attacks.

Solution

Together We Rise London is a series of motivational speaking events, designed to inspire hope and aspirations to children suffering with PTSD, after the Grenfell fire disaster. Popular guest speakers will share the ups and downs of their personal journeys to invigorate inspiration for success. Free workshops on coding, money management, Lego therapy and entrepreneurship will be provided, preparing these children to take a greater part in the future of their broken community and London.

Long-Term Impact

It is important that we don't lose sight of the psychological impact this fire will have had on its survivors. Long term impact will be significant improved mental health benefits that positive thinking can bring. Our educational programmes will empower these young Londoners from disadvantaged backgrounds to acquire the skills and opportunities they need to secure employment, climb the career ladder and escape the threat of poverty.
