Brent Advice and Information Agencies

Brent Council has put in place arrangements for working with voluntary/community organisations through the outbreak. This is based around seven thematic groups covering different service delivery areas, each led by someone from a designated lead organisation who will work with others organisations in the same sector to help ensure a coordinated approach. These will be supported by the Council to help them maintain their services to Brent residents as much as is possible.

Scams
