Help for Families: Beam Parklands Fire 2022

On Tuesday 19 July a fire spread in the Beam Parklands / Ballards Road area in Dagenham.

While we're so grateful that no casualties were reported, 14 homes have sadly been completely destroyed and those families have lost everything. Some other properties also have external damage that will need repairing.

The council has been supporting residents at an emergency rest centre and ensuring that everyone affected has somewhere to stay.

This page has been set up for donations to help the families impacted by the fire. As you can imagine, it's an extremely difficult time for the people who have lost everything, and while their personal possessions can never be replaced, this will hopefully help them get back on their feet in the coming weeks.

We’re asking people not to come to the rest centre with items for donations at the moment because our staff are trying to support people who are understandably distressed. The best way you can help right now is by donating on this page.

This is the official crowdfunding page, endorsed by Barking and Dagenham Council, who are working with community partners including BD_Collective, to raise funds for those who have been affected.

For more information, please head to the council’s webpage for the latest updates:
