Celebrating Community with #BrentTogether
In these difficult times, community has never been more important.
We know that there are so many groups, organisations and businesses out there doing fantastic work to support our communities through the COVID-19 pandemic. So we’ve launched a campaign to celebrate these initiatives and the people behind them.
From offering services that make people feel less alone when they are isolating, to donating products from your business, or sharing free exercise videos and tips online, we want to hear from you.
If you are one of those doing great work to help people in the borough, please give us a flavour of what you’re doing and how people can get involved by tweeting and using the hashtag #BrentTogether. This will allow us to share and celebrate with a wider audience.
You can check the latest local initiatives, shared by others on this page.
We will also be sharing roundups highlighting some of the initiatives you've told us about. Check back in on the news section of our website, the next edition of Your Brent magazine or follow us on social media for these.
