There have been two events in 2017 which we think are highly significant. There has been yet another fire in a care home where residents lost their lives, and the dreadful events at Grenfell Tower in June, where over 80 people perished.

One of the major deficiencies in England is that there is no requirement for care homes to have a sprinkler system.

We believe that this will result in continuing loss of live of vulnerable people in care homes. This is why we have invested over £90,000 in protecting our residents here at St George’s.
