Community Champions for Brent’s Private Rented Sector

4 June 2018

It’s all about supporting private renters and landlords

Community Champions...

  • Will be leaders/members of Brent’s voluntary and community sectors
  • Will have interest in improving private tenant housing conditions in their communities
  • Won’t be expected to have prior knowledge of the Private Rented Sector – we will provide resources and support
  • Won’t be formal advisors – champions will share key information, and signpost to further advice and support

We are developing a network of community champions to provide key information to tenants and landlords in the private rented sector.

Join our training session on Wednesday 27 June, 3pm at Brent Civic Centre.
