Youth support in Barnet
Supporting young people in Barnet
The Youth and Community Service provides targeted youth workers to work with the borough's most vulnerable young people. We aim to help them resolve difficulties and re-engage with education, employment, or training. We work with schools, parenting support, families and local community organisations.
We also offer a wide range of positive activities throughout the year for young people across the borough. See the young people's organised activities page for further information.

The Youth and Community Service provides a confidential place for young people to speak to a support worker without an appointment, for advice on the following:
- careers advice and guidance
- sexual health
- drugs and alcohol
- access to counselling
- engagement in local community activities
We also provide a confidential counselling service for young people throughout the week by appointment. See contact details on the right.
