Community participation strategy
Our vision for working together with communities
Councillors have committed to do more to listen to residents and involve them in designing council services and addressing issues that affect them.
Together: The Community Participation Strategy 2022 (PDF) was approved at the Community Leadership and Libraries Committee in October 2022.
It sets out how we will put communities at the heart of everything we do, reach out and involve people who are less often heard to address inequalities better, highlighting the good work already underway and the key changes that will be made.
The Community Participation Strategy commits Barnet Council to five principles that will guide our work:
- going to where communities are
- learning through doing
- being transparent
- valuing community power
