Love Where You Live (LWYL)

Love Where You Live aims to provide some support to vulnerable residents in the borough of Brent. Residents, community organisations and schools can apply for grants to deliver special emergency projects that tackle social isolation or encourage community cohesion without contravening UK Government guidance and measures during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Who can apply
Grants are available for all residents, community groups, non-for-profit voluntary groups
and schools who have an idea to improve the environment, tackle social isolation or help
to build better community relations. Applicants must be over the age of 16, living in Brent
and able to demonstrate support from their neighbours for their proposed project. As it is not appropriate to get signatures at this time we will accept emails, copies of texts or
WhatsApp group etc. uploaded.

Funding criteria
- The project should be a one-off activity with a clear beginning and end.
- Projects should fit one of two key themes:
1. Developing community cohesion and bringing the community together (without
the need for physical contact or creating gatherings) – projects which help create
a sense of belonging. This could include online projects.
2. Tackling social isolation – supporting people who have little support or minimal
contact with others due to older age, mental/physical disabilities or who are selfisolating due to Covid – 19.
- The project should be based wholly within one of five local areas:
Harlesden (covering Harlesden, Kensal Green and Stonebridge wards)
Kilburn (covering Brondesbury Park, Kilburn, Mapesbury and Queens Park
