Gaby Doherty, her husband Sean, and their four children live in a flat across from Grenfell Tower, and Sean (a Church of England minister) was the first clergy person on the scene after a fire destroyed the building. This book stems from personal experience of the impact of the fire, featuring the testimony of and commentary on the community that experienced it, and the amazing stories of hope that followed in its wake.

Grenfell Hope will help readers understand what it was like living in North Kensington before and after the fire. It will help engage the reader with poverty issues, to examine attitudes to the poor, and to consider how even small gestures in everyday life can change local communities.

In the desperate situation of the fire, God was at work in people's hearts bringing hope in tiny gestures that mounted up to something enormous. Hope that couldn't be ignored or even contained. Hope sprang out all over the country.

Gaby Doherty decided in college that she would go anywhere and do anything God wanted her to do. For three years she and her husband Sean worked in a multicultural church in Cricklewood, where she made friends in the Muslim community, before the couple moved to West London where Gaby joined the Grenfell Action Group.
