It’s your turn – YOU Decide! We’re putting £2.25million in the hands of local people to choose which community projects to fund.
Come along to your local Decision Day and cast your vote.
Residents, community groups and voluntary organisations are all invited. Projects fall into two categories:
- £2million will be divided equally across the borough for physical improvements to local neighbourhoods, this could be anything from painting and refurbishing a local community centre, to improving children’s play areas or installing public water fountains. The money will be split equally between the five Brent Connects areas.
- A further £250,000 will be given out to fund health and wellbeing projects across the five Brent Connects areas. Ideas that will receive funding will help people live happy, healthy lives for the future.
The dates and locations for your Decision Days are as follows:
Kilburn & Kensal Rise, Saturday 18 June at St Augustine's CE High School, Oxford Road, NW6 5SN
Kingsbury & Kenton, Saturday 25 June at Kingsbury High School (Kingsbury Hall), Princes Avenue, Kingsbury, London, NW9 9JR
