31 Oct to 14 Nov: LB of Brent: "Harlesden Community Hub"



"We are planning to set up a pop-up Community Hub in Harlesden for two weeks from 31 October to 14 November 2016.

The Community Hub will help the council trial some ideas for new ways of working with partners and the community.

How it came about
The Community Hub was one of the key ideas thought up by residents and partners at the outcome based review (OBR) visioning event in July. The visioning event brought together people from across the borough, with the aim of helping the council generate innovative ideas for delivering a better service to its residents.
Who can get involved
Absolutely anyone can get involved with the Community Hub. In fact, we’re looking for local volunteers to help run activities. If you would like to get involved, please contact amber.wilson@brent.gov.uk.

There are three outcome based reviews (OBRs) which the council is conducting to improve the way in which it delivers services to its residents. The three OBRs are focused on:
  • Housing and vulnerable people
  • Employment and welfare reform
  • Regeneration (physical, environmental and social).
The initial stage of the OBRs comprised primarily of community research, focus groups and interviews, designed to get a detailed sense of what matters most to residents in their lives. This research was then used to inform the visioning event, which brought together stakeholders from across the borough to generate innovative new ideas about how to deliver a better service to residents.

The Community Hub is the exciting next phase, where we put some of the thinking from the visioning event into practice."
