KENSINGTON and Chelsea council have been accused of “degrading” Grenfell Tower survivors after some were publicly denied their cash relief payments.
Households who lost their homes were set to receive a minimum of £5,000 paid into their bank account and given £500 in cash, the Times reports.
But some families were forced to walk away from local centres empty handed.
“It is demeaning and degrading. The process has not been respectful. It could have been done better.
“People have been going without letters because they didn’t receive one, lists of names and addresses don’t match up. We’ve had people entitled to payments being turned away.”
