As of April 2021, there are 3 years of the Grenfell Recovery Programme remaining, and so the Council are seeking to ensure that the remaining funding has maximum impact for residents, something they aim to "achieve together both now and in the longer term".
In the spirit of the Charter for Public Participation adopted just before Lockdown 1.0 the Council recognises and is committed to seeing that our communities are integral to shaping and controlling our own recovery "and that people’s needs are changing, so we want to ensure that our approach is as collaborative as possible." The Council are therefore "proposing to set out a resourcing framework to provide clarity on the key areas of focus over the remaining 3 years of the programme."
The Council continue that "within the parameters of the original Grenfell Recovery Strategy, the framework will:
- Provide clarity on the medium-term outcomes and areas of focus for the different parts of the programme, so everyone is clearer on the future we are all working towards
- Clearly set out the remaining funding available for the different parts of the programme, based on even reductions implemented across the programme, providing greater transparency;
- Enable more collaboration and partnership working with the communities we serve, by creating more opportunities for communities to be able to influence and shape the elements of the programme that are relevant to them;
- Support longer-term planning across the Council, by showing the potential of collaboration and co-design with residents, partners and other stakeholders in all our work and embedding learning beyond the end of the programme to ensure there is an identifiable legacy from the tragedy in everything we do".
