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.
