Celebrating community during COVID-19 with the launch of #BrentTogether

9 April 2020

A new campaign will celebrate the brilliant people-powered initiatives that are supporting our communities through the COVID-19 pandemic.

From those helping self-isolating neighbours to feel less alone, to businesses donating products straight from their shelves to the vulnerable, #BrentTogether celebrates the community spirit and ingenuity that is thriving during this difficult time.

Cllr Tom Miller, Lead Member for Community Safety and Engagement, said: “In these difficult times, community has never been more important. We’ve heard brilliant stories of togetherness from all corners of Brent. This campaign is all about lifting up the groups, organisations and businesses that are doing important work in our communities and celebrating them.

“Perhaps you’ve created free online resources for people to learn, exercise, or even to engage with arts and culture from home? Or maybe you’ve created a mutual aid group for your area? However you’re helping, we want to hear from you.”

To get involved, tweet a video, photo, or just a line or two, giving a flavour of what you are doing and how others can get involved using #BrentTogether. This will help Brent Council to share and celebrate with a wider audience.
