NEW therapy rooms for people affected by the Grenfell Tower fire have been opened.
The Curve centre has opened in Bard Road – a short walk from the tower near Latimer Road – and is run by Central North West London NHS Trust.
The redesign, funded by Kensington and Chelsea council, features a set of semi- abstracted, water-themed pictures by the artist Christopher Corr.
Organisers said the pictures were “predominantly blue to create a cooling and calming effect which was seen as particularly relevant in the Grenfell context”.
“We are also working on a project which will bring some additional work by local children into the building, to add to the pictures we have hung” said Dr Nick Rhodes, who runs art projects across the trust.
The Grenfell Health and Wellbeing Service is a free NHS service for children and adults affected by the Grenfell Tower fire in June.
