The first joint Branch and Professional Working Group seminar was held at Leicestershire Police HQ on 12 July. Thirty five members and paying guests spent an informative day learning about the threat, defence measures, training and exercising plus a case study.

Andy McCombe, Chair of the East Midlands Branch, said that it was great to see so many members from other branches making the trip to improve their knowledge and network with other members and guests.
Many thousands of people offered their help. There were over 10,000 emails to the Grenfell volunteer email address and thousands more made their way to the area and found ways to help. Volunteers’ efforts made a tremendous contribution to the community response to the tragedy.
