Our Journey

You Can

The economy we are living in is harsh and inflation is continuous, so we are offering free of charge and free of commitment workshops and classes for the community so they can get a quality start in their chosen craft. Free of commitment means there are no membership fees or compulsory sign up procedure. We have been running some sessions in the borough of Brent and they have been well received, the number of participants increases and feedback has been positive. There is absolutely no charge for any of our projects, all of our participants find this to be helpful and are committed to attending sessions on a weekly basis. Recreational fitness and extracurricular activities for young people are at an all time low in Brent, specifically the Wembley Central and Wembley Park wards of Brent. We are passionate about the provision of these activities for the community, offering an environment where young people can thrive and learn while socialising and enjoying themselves.

KST Love Where You Live Carnival
KST Love Where You Live Carnival joined A Better Brent2 days ago

6 Kingsbury Schools have been tidying up their local community to rid the streets of litter through regular pupil litter picking sessions; pupils have engaged with the local community to encourage them to be more vigilant on litter picking and flytipping in our area. The pupils have also been learning about recycling and reusing their rubbish rather than sending to landfill. In class, our Year 4 pupils will be making new products from their waste. They will showcase their work in a carnival through Kingsbury High Street, culminating in the local park to showcase our ideas. All the work will be on display at our Civic Centre to encourage our wider Brent community to re-think and take responsibility for their rubbish. We will be designing leaflets and posting these in our neighbourhood to engage everybody.

The Chasers joined A Better Brent2 weeks ago

The inspiration for The Chasers was a vision of football being played the right way with the right attitude and the right support without costing an arm and a leg. We pride ourselves on delivering training sessions that adhere to these principles. We also have big interest in our local community and hope to be involved as much as possible in improving our local area be it with the environment or the people. With this funding we will be able to occupy an underused or unused space and use it as our main training space. If this is achieved we will be able to put the money we make from the soccer school into staff training, reduced training rates and most importantly we will be able to hire qualified coaches to hold sports and activity sessions for the SEN children in our immediate area.
