A recently completed project, a partnership between Ashford Place and MAFW Mutual Aid Food Willesden has supported 120 of the most vulnerable residents in Brent to overcome health inequalities and support them on their road to recovery.
The Ashford Place Community Recovery Project was put together to help combat the difficulties encountered by many Brent residents during the pandemic year, as the announcement of the first lockdown brought a lot of fear and uncertainty for many. Locally, a group of concerned supporters developed a useful and much-needed service to aid those in need during these trying times, forming Mutual Aid Food Willesden (MAFW). In November 2020 the Ashford Place Team offered to support the small MAFW team and go further with services contributions. This support allowed for a wider range of services to be offered to members of the community in need.
