The hub manages a network of local support, coordinating Barnet Together’s established community groups and volunteers, as well as providing a non-medical urgent care helpline.

Those in need of urgent support can call 0808 281 3210, 9am to 5pm Monday to Friday. You can also fill out the 'request help and support' form on our website.

The online Community Help Hub can be found via our engage website.

Leader of Barnet Council, Councillor Dan Thomas, said: “The council’s Community Help Hub supports those Barnet residents most in need of extra help. There has already been an amazing response by the borough’s community groups. This hub coordinates and directs the extraordinary humanitarian aid effort underway to our most vulnerable neighbours.

“While we need to socially distance, we also need to look out for each other. If you’re in a fortunate position, then I ask you to volunteer to help those in our borough who are less fortunate. Please use our Community Help Hub to ensure that your support is directed to those people who need it most. Together, we will get through this.”

The Community Help Hub provides information to help Barnet residents to:

  • find out how to help their community and keep safe
  • connect them to community resources, services, and virtual opportunities
  • keep updated about important developments
  • gather and share positive community stories and coping strategies

Community organisations that can offer help and want to be involved with the COVID-19 response should get in touch by emailing: strategy@barnet.gov.uk
