Brent Hubs – Brent Council
Posted on 4th October, 2019
Brent Hubs aim to build resilience into local communities; reducing long term dependency on services. They offer alternative ways for Brent residents to connect with local organisations and each other, to access information advice and support, and to use community space to develop ideas and activities that enhance the local area.
The Brent Hubs model was conceived and developed through system-wide reviews of cross-cutting issues, including housing, employment and regeneration. The reviews used a range of community research and engagement techniques to understand issues and challenges and use design-led methodology to create something different: a new way of partnership working that provides responsive local services and activities tailored to local needs.
