the Community Foundation for the people of Kirklees.
We have had an incredible response to our appeal so far and now have more than £2 million in donated funds to distribute to the community. We are working with local authorities to coordinate relief efforts and make sure funds get to where they are most needed.
We are working with local authorities to coordinate relief efforts and make sure funds get to where they are most needed. So far, we have distributed grants to local community groups who are providing shelter for families and we will continue to ensure that the community affected is supported with immediate relief - as well as any long-term assistance required to rebuild their lives following this tragedy. We anticipate that the community will soon need furniture and assistance with rehoming costs, funeral costs and legal advice, so we will continue to fundraise to meet these needs.
If anyone you know would like to support our relief programme for the residents and their families, please direct them to donate through one of these channels:
Thank you once again for your support. We will be communicating more about our evolving plans to support the community next week. In the meantime, thanks again for all your help.
