Update on the Grenfell Tower Inquiry

The Grenfell Tower Inquiry has issued an update indicating a delay in the publication of its report, originally scheduled before the next anniversary of the fire.

The delay stems from the complex and extensive process of notifying individuals who may be subject to criticism in the report, as required by rule 13 of the Inquiry Rules.

The inquiry has engaged with approximately 250 people, making the process larger and more intricate than anticipated.

Despite the challenges, the inquiry remains committed to releasing the report as promptly as possible.

The entire team is striving to ensure efficiency, with a pledge to provide a new publication date as soon as a clearer timeline can be established.

Inquiry activities and community engagement

In the wake of concluding hearings for Phase 2, the inquiry continues to publish related documents on its official website.

The document sweep-up process is an ongoing effort to maintain transparency and keep the public informed.

Furthermore, the inquiry held its latest community drop-in session on March 25, 2024, at Bay20 in London.

These sessions serve as a platform for the public to gain insights into the inquiry process and pose questions directly to the inquiry team members.

Disclosure and support details

As of March 2024, the inquiry has disclosed a total of 320,442 documents across two phases.

These documents are part of the inquiry’s commitment to transparency and public understanding of the processes involved.

The inquiry also continues to offer counselling support services through the NHS Grenfell Health and Wellbeing Service, providing assistance for emotional well-being to those affected by the hearings and the broader community impacted by the fire.
