Do you need help from Brent Council & Police?


Many residents at the public meeting asked for contact details of Brent Officials & Safer Neighbourhood Teams. We encourage you to read the useful links first before reaching out to the officials as some of your questions can be answered directly on the Brent Council website and may save you time waiting for a response to your emails. If you do email or contact Brent or the police we also encourage you to copy us on info@wcara.org.uk so that we can track the queries.
