Communities across Brent are set to benefit from the opening of dedicated hubs which will assist vulnerable residents to access services, seek help and receive support in using online services.
Following the success of the original hub in Harlesden, new community hubs will be rolled out in a phased approach over the next two years to additional areas including Kilburn, Willesden, Wembley and Kingsbury and Kenton - with the Kilburn hub scheduled to open first in Spring 2019.
The aim of the hub model is to work with residents who find it difficult to access the support they need through mainstream services. The hub model is focused on supporting people to help themselves and each other, working with them to solve their problems and build knowledge, understanding and resilience.
The hubs will offer a physical space enabling a range of local organisations and voluntary and community sector services to work together under one roof and provide a more localised approach.
