Engaging and building trust post Grenfell

20 March 2019, Miles Platting

About the event

Robin Lawler, Chief Executive of Northwards Housing, Chair of Plus Dane’s Board and Former President of the CIH will share an overview of the response of his organisation and the strategic response of the Board of Greater Manchester providers that was set up post Grenfell.

Paul Doherty and Demi Duplex from One Manchester will tell the story of engagement with tenants and leaseholders in One Manchester’s 17 high rise blocks in the immediate aftermath of Grenfell and through the necessary fire safety works.

Phil Lukes, One Manchester’s Group Cultural lead will describe the ‘One Top of the World Project’ run in conjunction with the Royal Exchange. The work engaged with residents who had not previously had a relationship with One Manchester. The work influenced changes in One Manchester’s approach to working with residents in Tower Blocks.
