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.
