The government have released guidance on support for those affected, including where to go for urgent advice, banks offering help, and UK passports, visas and immigration advice. Link can be found here.
People directly affected by the fire at Grenfell Tower who are seeking guidance on UK passports, visas or immigration, can call the advice line 24 hours a day to arrange for a call back by specialist teams: 0300 222 0000
Residents who are here illegally but have lost their homes in the fire will be permitted to stay in the UK for up to 12 months. No application needs to be made but they need to talk to someone at The Curve Assistance Centre. People are able to take along someone to support them with this. They will also need to take any documents they have to show they were living at Grenfell Tower on the date of the fire or close to it. If documents were lost in the fire, The Curse has said they can still help.
The Curve Helpline: 0300 222 0000, open 24 hours a day.
