About us

Barnet is a vibrant, diverse and successful city-suburb of London with big ambitions. Our residents enjoy:

  • a clean and green environment
  • excellent schools
  • low levels of crime
  • good transport links
  • high quality housing and public spaces

The borough is a net exporter of commuters into Central London, but with a significant local economy of our own with in-commuting. Generally, Barnet is affluent, but we also have six areas within the top 10 per cent of most deprived in the country.

Changing demographics

Barnet’s population is expected to increase to 403,700 by 2021. We estimate the number of children and young people aged 0 to 19 years will grow 6% by then, to 98,914 which is almost quarter of borough’s overall population. We work with 2% of this population.

Join the London Borough of Barnet, one of London’s fastest growing boroughs and make a real difference to the lives of children and their families.
