The Community Coaches project

The Community Coaches project matched families and individuals with a team of volunteers to help them develop life skills to ensure they are less reliant on public services. The project was delivered by an external provider, Home Start Barnet. 

Benefits

Financial

  • reducing the costs associated with people being at risk of eviction
  • longer term financial benefits through reducing the burden on public services in Barnet, by encouraging more stable lifestyles and reducing truancy, anti-social behaviour and homelessness.

 

Non-financial

  • families and individuals have shown a 46% reduction in use of public services following support from Community Coaches volunteers
  • in addition to financial savings, other non-financial benefits are being realised, such as a 60% reduction in behaviour that is harmful to others, which improves community safety in the borough.
