How it works

The London Emergencies Trust (LET) is working with the British Red Cross to distribute charitable donations by the public to those directly affected by the terror attacks at:

WestminsterLondon BridgeFinsbury Park and Parsons Green

It is also helping with the distribution of donated cash to the victims of the Grenfell Tower fire.

LET has been asked to distribute the money because it is experienced, and balances care with speed.

Our simple and easy-to-fill-in application forms are available from

  • Police Family Liaison Officers (FLOs)
  • And in the case of Grenfell Tower, locally based key workers who have all been informed so they can guide families to help by sending people to key local voluntary organisations.

Or email us to ask for our easy-to-complete application form here

There are four categories of payment:

  • The next of kin of a person who died has been awarded £60,000
  • Any person who has been hospitalised for at least a week has been awarded £30,000
  • Any individual who was hospitalised for between four days and one week has been awarded £10,000
  • Any person who was hospitalised for at least six hours (but for less than four days) has been awarded £3,500

We do some simple checks to verify claims. We know that people will have lost important documents and so we rely on the information we are given in support of an application. 

We ask people to provide only the most basic of information to enable us to process a request.  We will never ask for more detail than we absolutely need and we will never pass any information onto any third party without an applicant’s express permission.
