Residents get together to boost community engagement


Over 30 Brent council tenants and leaseholders along with councillors packed into a community room in Kilburn on Saturday 21 May to share ideas on how they could boost community engagement.

Staff from Brent Housing Partnership (BHP) and Leader of Brent Council, Councillor Muhammed Butt were on hand to receive feedback and answer questions on how residents could get more involved in their local community and services.

The get together at the Kilburn Square Housing Cooperative was one of four which take place each year which are organised and led by local residents representatives, and provides an informal opportunity for these representatives to meet up and share ideas and learn from each other.

Margaret Von Stoll, BHP resident Board Member said: “The event was very successful, and it was good listening to each other and looking at how we can try and improve services for all residents. We were also able to learn from each other and see if there are any issues in common.”

Attendees gave BHP staff their feedback on the event and how BHP engages with residents in general. To view this please click on the following link.
