A recent report says that Brent is among the best areas of the country for poor and disadvantage young people to realise their potential.

This is according to the Index for Social Mobility which is a report put together by the Government. It says that Brent stacks up well against cities, towns and rural areas across the UK for the opportunities it offers young people in the local area to get into a good job and a enjoy a decent standard of living.

This is in stark contrast to some of the richest parts of the UK with well-off places like Oxford, Cambridge and Northampton where poorer youngsters do less well.

The report looks into a range of 16 different factors for every area, including educational results of young people from poorer backgrounds and the jobs and homes held by adults.
