Love where you live grants

Brent’s Love where you live campaign, which launched on Valentine’s Day in 2016, is harnessing residents pride in their local neighbourhoods and is going from strength to strength.

The campaign aims to make it easier for residents to work with the council as it strives to make the borough a cleaner, greener and better place to live.

And now with a little help from a new Love where you live grant, you can now do even more to brighten up your neighbourhood and inspire a bit of community spirit.

Whether it’s organising a street party, brightening up your local area with some flowers or establishing a weekly event for those who feel isolated in your area, these grants offer the chance to bring your community together and make a difference in your neighbourhood.

Who can apply?

Grants are available for all residents, community groups and schools who have an idea to improve the environment, tackle social isolation or help to build better community relations. Applicants must be over the age of 16, living in Brent and able to demonstrate support from their neighbours for their proposed project.

How much you can apply for?

Each applicant can apply for a grant of up to £500 for their chosen project. Applications can be submitted at any time during the year, and are limited to one submission per year, in order to allow support for a wide range of projects across the borough.

What to do next?

To apply for a Love where you live grant, fill in a quick and easy application form here. Applications are reviewed once a month and you will be informed when a decision has been made.

Once you have received confirmation, you will need to let us know when and where your activity will take place in advance. You should also use the Love where you live logo on any promotional material you produce for your project.

If you have any further questions please contact Partnership and Engagement on 020 8937 1234 or email

And finally...

Please remember to itemise all costs. Tell us what you want us to pay for and how much it costs. Get quotes where possible. Breakdown cost into components e.g. rather than the cost of an outing, tell us how you will get there and what else will be included, what are transport costs, for example 20 train tickets at £5 each = £100, what else will be provided? Lunch for 20 people at £4.50 per head = £90. Publicity for the event 50 flyers and 5 big posters = £25. Total cost of project = £215.
