The community and its welfare matter to us most.
The Harrow Monitoring Group is grown out of a cumulative and collective experience in serving the Harrow community that goes back many years. The group was formally launched in 2014.
Photo below is an example of a borough-wide initiative in 1991 which was widely supported by the community organisations, some are still active and supportive:
The group is not an online newspaper but a community group and as such analyses, comments, and raises searching/leading questions about the issues of interest/concern, all in public interest and to inform public opinion.

Our prime objective is to work towards improving the quality of life by (a) promoting social justice (b) monitoring and dealing with any policies, practices or situations of interest to the community, including those that adversely affect residents welfare and rights, particularly vulnerable or less well represented (c) focusing on the areas in the borough that are most deprived according to the Index of Multiple Deprivation (d) educating public opinion by keeping informed and being informed in a very diverse borough.
