This is the thing that I don’t understand. I know people who have worked in the emergency housing. Whose job it is to coordinate finding accommodation and placing people. When the fires happened in Shirley Towers residents were found accommodation. Referrals were made to children’s services if there were children in the family to see if they needed any additional support. I am sure vulnerable adults were referred to Adult services. Finances were provided. It was a small number not on the scale of this but that is my experience when an emergency situation happens. I heard from an ex colleague that at the Manchester terror attack children’s services were incredibly busy the day after to support people.
K&C council may not have enough staff to manage but ask neighbouring boroughs to support you. There are 30 odd boroughs in London. Yes we are working on bare bones in places but as a member of staff I’m sure people would want to help.
