When making civil eligibility assessments for victims of the Grenfell Tower fire you can disregard any financial support they have received from the Governments Grenfell Tower Residents Discretionary Fund or charities to pay for essentials such as clothes, food, transport and funeral costs following the fire.

We have urgently amended relevant legislation to ensure that Grenfell Tower fire victims are not disadvantaged in applying for legal aid because of these payments.

Details are in the further guidance see link below.
