A series of forums for the borough's ethnic communities will give people the chance to have their voice heard.
Brent Council's Black and Minority Ethnic (BME) Consultative Forum gives people the chance to meet with ward councillors and council staff and also bring up any concerns they have.
Experts on a range of topics, such as Patrick Vernon, chief executive of the North West London Community Foundation and Tunde Bnjoko OBE, chief executive of Local Employment Area Projects (LEAP), will be at the forum to hand out advice.
Jennifer Crook, head of diversity at Brent Council, said: "Brent is home to hundreds of cultures and communities drawn from every corner of the globe.
"That over 100 languages are spoken across the area is a good example of the vibrancy that makes West London unique."
The meetings are open to everyone and the first one takes place in committee rooms one, two and three at Brent Town Hall, Forty Lane, Wembley, on June 11 from 7.30pm to 9.30pm.
To book a place call Jay Bhattacharya on 020 8937 1143 and if you require an interpreter call Jennifer Laurent-Smart on 020 8937 1623.
