An Excellent Opportunity...
Brent is a tremendously vibrant London borough where the iconic arch of Wembley Stadium dominates the skyline. Spanning both inner and outer London, it is a borough of huge contrasts in terms of its economic, environmental, ethnic and social make up. Brent’s diversity is evident to all who visit our borough and our long history of ethnic and cultural diversity has created a place that is truly unique and valued by those who live and work here.
Wherever you look in Brent, you will find challenges and also opportunities.  Some of the communities we serve are vulnerable and marginalised, and of course local authority financing has been severely constrained and radically restructured.  But in Brent we look more for opportunities, and to date have succeeded in finding innovative and creative solutions to the many issues we face. With your help we'll deal with future funding challenges too.
