Local communities are invited to put forward ideas that will help make a positive difference to the lives of people living in their neighbourhood.
It uses a form of Participatory Budgeting (PB) that empowers local people to submit projects that they want to see in their local area. Residents are then invited to attend ‘Decision Day’ events in their area where they will vote for which projects will receive money.
The application process for You Decide is now closed. We cannot accept late applications. The next round of NCIL will take place in Autumn 2022.
Two more pots of money are being distributed in this way following the success of CO2GO.
There are two different pots of money to submit applications for:
- Neighbourhood Community Infrastructure Levy (NCIL)
£2million will be divided equally amongst the five Brent connects areas of Harlesden, Kilburn, Kingsbury and Kenton, Wembley and Willesden.
- Brent Health Matters Health and Wellbeing Grant
A further £250,000 is available through the Brent Health Matters Health and Wellbeing Grant fund. £50,000 is allocated to each Brent connects area to support health and wellbeing.
