Partners and Supporters

Our project is proudly supported and funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, and a team of dedicated researchers and academics at the University of East London and Raphael Samuel History Centre. Bishopsgate Institute provides all archival assistance in preserving and recording all the documents and images from the disaster, and the oral interviews which we conducted with survivors, families of victims, emergency personnel who assisted on that fateful night, and the wider community. The memorial was designed by Harry Paticas of Arboreal Architects Ltd., and through the  endorsement and enthusiasm of Bethnal Green Library and the Idea Stores, the London Borough of Tower Hamlets is managing access to the Memoryscape audio trail. We have had limitless support and advice from Sandra Scotting of Stairway to Heaven Memorial Trust, the charity which fundraise for the memorial and organise all Memorial Services.
