Research being conducted on the Grenfell Tower Fire

(24 January 2020)

You are invited to take part in an 8-10 minute questionnaire investigating public opinion of the Grenfell Tower fire. The devastating event two years ago has sparked much debate on who should be considered responsible, hence this questionnaire is looking into just that. If you are interested, the survey can be found here: Email any questions to

Your participation is voluntary, and you do not have to agree to take part. If you do agree to take part, you will be able to withdraw from the study up until the point of data submission (i.e. when you finish the survey). You will not be able to withdraw after this point as this is an anonymous survey and so it will not be possible to disaggregate it from the other anonymous data which has been submitted.

If you agree to take part, you will be asked to complete a series of questions in an online survey which is made up of two parts. The first part will ask you demographic questions about yourself and your background. The second part will ask you a variety of questions about your opinions regarding the Grenfell Tower fire, in order to fulfill the aims stated above. The questions will specifically aim to understand who you believe to be responsible for the Grenfell Tower fire, whether you think the fire could be considered criminal in nature (and if not, how else would you define it), and what your assessment is towards the Government’s response to the fire.
