A new group has been formed to give younger people a greater say on important local issues.

Brentford Youth Voice has been started by Councillor Lara Parizotto for those aged between 18-30 living or working in the TW8 area. She has distributed hundreds of leaflets around the area to raise awareness.

Local decision making can be dominated by older generations, so the group will aim to allow a broader input.

A meeting is being held on Wednesday 11 January at 6.30pm which will provide a chance to and learn more about Brentford Youth Voice. As long as you are interested in working to create a better Brentford, you are welcome to join.

To encourage people to attend 16 tickets for the game between Brentford and Bournemouth taking place on 14 January are being made available to those taking part.

The intention is to hold meetings every couple of months to discuss the issues that matter to young people in TW8.

Issues to be discussed will include:

• Developing the Brentford night economy
• Renters’ rights in Brentford
• Skills and job opportunities
• Shaping local development
• Arts and culture
• Local environment
• Equalities & Diversity

If you’re interested in attending get in touch with local Councillor Lara Parizotto to find out more: or Whatsapp 07511 780042.

This site remains committed to providing local community news and public interest journalism.

Articles such as the one above are integral to what we do. We aim to feature as much as possible on local societies, charities based in the area, fundraising efforts by residents, community-based initiatives and even helping people find missing pets.

We’ve always done that and won’t be changing, in fact we’d like to do more.

However, the readership that these stories generates is often below that needed to cover the cost of producing them. Our financial resources are limited and the local media environment is intensely competitive so there is a constraint on what we can do.

We are therefore asking our readers to consider offering financial support to these efforts. Any money given will help support community and public interest news and the expansion of our coverage in this area.

A suggested monthly payment is £8 but we would be grateful for any amount for instance if you think this site offers the equivalent value of a subscription to a daily printed newspaper you may wish to consider £20 per month. If neither of these amounts is suitable for you then contact and we can set up an alternative. All payments are made through a secure web site.

One-off donations are also appreciated. Choose The Amount You Wish To Contribute.

If you do support us in this way we’d be interested to hear what kind of articles you would like to see more of on the site – send your suggestions to the editor.

For businesses we offer the chance to be a corporate sponsor of community content on the site. For £30 plus VAT per month you will be the designated sponsor of at least one article a month with your logo appearing if supplied. If there is a specific community group or initiative you’d like to support we can make sure your sponsorship is featured on related content for a one off payment of £50 plus VAT.
