Ward Working 2010/2011

Ward Working is a way councillors can support projects and improvements in their wards. A small fund (£20,000) is available for each ward in Brent. The 3 councillors have to agree to allocate funds to works or projects that are not the council’s responsibility to deal with.  This year, projects have included:

Brent Museum and Archives  – textile craft workshops and workshops to explore support services for people with mental health problems
Kings Hall Community Centre – storage shed and resources for new youth club started by parents
Victory Youth Group – football project
Cricklewood Homeless Concern – Night Shelter
Brent Area Community Watch – burglary prevention project
Willesden Green Library multiplexor
Planting in troughs leading to Sainsbury’s store
SNT Alert box funding for connection charge to link alert boxes within shops along the High Road
CAB – Working with the Tricycle Theatre to deliver financial education to young adults

We are now seeking ideas for the next financial year and would be pleased to hear residents’ suggestions.
