Youth support in Barnet

Supporting young people in Barnet

The Youth and Community Service provide targeted youth workers, who are working with the borough's most vulnerable young people, with the aim of supporting them to 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. For further information on please see our young people's organised activities page.
