Mapping the children and young people’s health and well-being support services in North Kensington   The Grenfell Tower fire tragedy that took place on 14th June 2017 was not just the devastation of a physical building but a human travesty. A faulty fridge freezer in a kitchen on the second floor of the 24-storey Grenfell Tower block of public housing flats in North Kensington, Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, is believed to have started the fire which engulfed the floors above.  Set against this backdrop, we were engaged by Working with Men to undertake a ‘three months’ mapping exercise to produce: “…a directory and/or map of those services in place to support the health and well-being needs of children and young people living in North Kensington.”
