Home Group statement on fire safety following Grenfell Tower fire

June 15th, 2017 in Home Group News

The safety of our customers is of paramount importance to us.

Home Group’s Chief Executive, Mark Henderson said: “My thoughts today are with the many people impacted by the devastating huge fire that broke out yesterday at Grenfell Tower in London. We await the outcome of the investigation into the fire, and should not speculate at this point, but I want to reassure our customers that Home Group take our responsibility to keep you safe very seriously.”

Home Group is responsible for fire safety in all supported housing and any communal areas of rented or leased housing. Our health and safety team report and monitor compliance on a weekly basis and provide monthly reports to the executive team. 

We assess and instruct competent contractors to complete regular Fire Risk Assessments (FRA) and all of our properties have the appropriate Fire Risk Assessments in place. Our properties are fitted with a range of fire detection and alarm systems suitable to the type of building. We carry out regular checks to confirm that fire safety arrangements are operating effectively.

If any customers are at all concerned please contact us and we will arrange for a Housing Manager to discuss your concerns with you.
