Event description
You Decide is where local residents in Brent are part of the decision making in voting for which projects they wish to see funded locally.

About this event

Brent Council have launched a new initiative based on a method called Participatory Budgeting, which enables local people to make decisions on these grants. Through You Decide NCIL (Neighbourhood Community Infrastructure Levy) and Brent Health Matters, where constituted organisations and businesses can submit ideas. Residents across Brent will decide on which projects will be funded at a public decision day event in June 2022.

Participatory Budgeting

Participatory Budgeting (PB) is a proven method of enabling local people to come together and decide on the allocation of money to benefit the community.

You Decide NCIL (Neighbourhood Community Infrastructure Levy)

We are looking for community-led projects, which address the impacts and supports the ongoing development in the community by delivering a physical or social infrastructure project.

Total of £2m is available. Each Brent Connects Area has £400k to enable projects to be delivered.

A physical infrastructure project should aim to support the local community through initiatives such as improving or renovating a building or installing a new facility like a play area.

A social infrastructure project should aim to support the local community through initiatives such as educational courses, support schemes or promoting community cohesion.

This fund will open late March 2022 and we are encouraging constituted organisations and businesses to apply before the application closing date on Thursday 21 April 2022 at 23:59.

Brent Health Matters £250k

The goal of the Brent Health Matters Programme is to reduce health inequalities in Brent.

Health inequalities are avoidable, unfair and systematic differences in health between different groups of people.

Our shared programme will be looking to engage with the community on a number of wide ranging issues to reduce the health inequalities experienced in Brent.

Brent Health Matters is looking for community led projects to support Health and wellbeing of local communities.

There is total of £250k grant available, £40k will be ring fenced for each of the Brent connect area and £50k will be for any projects that are delivered borough wide.

It is only by working with the local people, groups and organisations around Brent and listening to what you have to say that we can improve the overall health of our borough.
