Petition text

Prevent another fire like Grenfell Tower. Please urgently make a deal to fund and refurbish all unsafe tower blocks.

Why is this important?

Months after the tragic fire at Grenfell Tower killed 80 people, families are still going to bed every night in dangerous homes. The government promised to make tower blocks safer, but essential safety work has been held up over squabbles about who should pay.

Thousands of people are still living in flats similar to Grenfell Tower: homes built with materials that set fire quickly, or lack proper sprinkler systems. Unless we get the government to do something about it now, we could see a tragedy like Grenfell again.

A massive petition, signed by hundreds of thousands of us, could force the government to get vital safety work under way immediately.
