From Cllr Mary Arnold
The partnership is growing and now includes all three councillors, the Neighbourhood Working co-ordinator, Marcia Griffiths, and Fiveways TRA. I have passed the chair over to Keith Lunn (south Kilburn OK Club) with a vice chair Jim Foord (Fiveways) and Simon Topping (Neighbourhood co-ordinator for Extended Schools) is providing good support.
The Group has achieved improved sports activities at Charteris, Youth Bus sessions, police engagement with partners and young people, wider partnership with the College, Music School, Tricycle, residents’ associations and Brent Youth, Sports Development and Extended Schools services. Areas for action include:
- The funding bid proposal – for youth and community facilities, changing to avoid duplicating the services Brent should provide
Streets for People
Co-ordinated information for young people, access and gaps in provision.
Partnership meetings are quarterly and there is a smaller Funding Bid sub-group. The next meeting on Fri Sept 12th Oct 24th 10.00 at Granvilleplus Centre includes Streets for People on the agenda.
Stop press – next meeting 24th Oct 10.00 – 11.30 – venue to be confirmed
