The Agency

Make your idea a reality! Join The Agency and turn your passion into a project

We are looking for people aged 15-25 from St Raphael’s, Chalk Hill and the surrounding neighbourhoods in Brent with ideas that need to happen.

In partnership with Kiln Theatre, we are providing training, support, funding and professional advice to young people looking to develop their passion into a project that benefits the local community. This could be anything from a boxing workshop to a music festival.

Following workshops with us, you can then pitch your idea to a panel of experts for the chance to win £2000; which will allow you to turn your idea into a business or social enterprise in your area.

This is your chance to make a positive change in your community, be the leader of your own unique business and gain vital skills to help you to succeed!
