Brent Labour is making things happen.  We have a track record of delivering for you.

Great to be at @NoChildBehindUK rally today as we campaign for #FreeSchoolMealsForAll.

EVERY child should be able to sit down with their friends, socialise and eat a hot school dinner together. 🍽️

A good education stretches from the canteen 🍲 to the classroom 📚.

📈Homelessness in England is at its highest level ever recorded.

Councils across the country are on the brink of bankruptcy after fourteen years of dangerous austerity politics.

🌹Labour knows this is something to be dealt with – and quickly. We're ready to do our bit ...in Brent.

What do we need?

🏡Urgent solutions to tackle the homelessness crisis
🤝A fair, multi-year funding settlement for councils
❤️An extension of the Household Support Fund
💚A new generation of energy efficient decent homes
🚊Unlocked funding for transport ...initiatives across London

🌹 Our sleeves are rolled up and we're ready to rebuild alongside this new mission-driven government.

✍️ Here's our letter to Keir Starmer on doing our bit for change in Brent:

Next weekend, the much-loved and used community skips are coming to Willesden Green, Dollis Hill and Cricklewood & Mapesbury.

Got a large item such as mattress or table you don’t need anymore? Bring it to one of the skip sessions and it’ll be recycled for free!

🌹 Our sleeves are rolled up and we're ready to rebuild alongside this new mission-driven government.

✍️ Here's our letter to Keir Starmer on doing our bit for change in Brent:

"Their boss says: you're fired. But you can come back tomorrow. We'll take £10,000 off your salary. But at least you'll have your job back.

"This can't be legal. And of course it shouldn't be."

Labour's @BarryGardiner celebrates news ...Gov will ban Fire & Rehire today.

🏡1.5 million new homes
💚Retrofitting for the future
👪Breakfast clubs in every primary school
🚌Expanded public transport networks
👩‍⚕️Putting health back at the heart of communities

Our Track Record of moving forward together in Brent

PANDEMIC RESPONSE

Tests, Jabs, PPE

Throughout the pandemic we supplied millions of life-saving PPE items to our partners, distributed thousands of Lateral Flow and PCR Tests and supported the NHS with over 600K vaccinations.

We proudly delivered food to shielded residents and shared thousands of food vouchers to students on Free School Meals.

With your vote in May, we have a golden opportunity to renew Brent with a common purpose and take action on the long-standing economic, racial and health inequities that remain.

£20M INVESTMENT

in road repairs

We’ve invested £20m to repair 128KM of roads and pavements: enough to get you from Brent to Dover. We maintain nearly 330KM of pavements each and every year.

In the last year alone, we’ve filled 1,109 potholes and invested millions in Church End and Wembley High Road to re-pave the town-centre.

With your vote in May, we will invest a further £15m on the next phase of repairs to our roads and pavements and we’ll re-double efforts to enable more travel by foot, bike and public transport.

4,533 TREES

planted across Brent

We’re creating a greener Brent to tackle the climate emergency – and with 4,533 trees planted in the last 4 years, we’re doing our bit, tree by tree.

We preserve and protect 110 parks and green spaces in Brent, alongside our 22 wild-flower meadows and bee corridors.

With your vote in May, we will double the number of trees planted in our last term and we’ll invest more in our parks and sports to facilities, upgrading paths, pitches and playgrounds.

STRIVE FOR NET ZERO

emissions by 2030

We declared a Climate and Ecological Emergency in 2019 and have cut our emissions in the council by 67.7% over the last decade.

We’ve also established a Carbon offset fund, with residents deciding where our money is best spent to protect the environment.

With your vote in May, we will continue to decarbonise the council, electrifying more of our vehicles and making it easier to dispose of household waste, through our Community Skip Programme.

OVER 1,000

new council homes

We’re building our way out of the housing crisis with over 1,000 new council homes and over 5,000 affordable homes with partners.

We’ve purchased 354 homes to be let at affordable rents with our council-owned company Invest 4 Brent.

With your vote in May, we will turbo-charge our council housing building programme further, bringing more sites forward and work to retro-fit our homes to reduce energy bills.

AWARDED

Borough of Cultures

Thanks to Mayor Sadiq Khan, Brent Council was awarded the honour of London Borough of Culture, with a programme celebrating our diversity, masterminded by our young people.

We have also been awarded ‘Council of the Year’ by the Local Government Chronicle.

With your vote In May, we will continue to promote our outstanding schools and work with the Mayor of London to provide professional mentors to young people with the greatest barriers in life.
