Community Help Hub - working together to support our communities

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Community groups across our borough are pulling together in an unprecedented way to support vulnerable people during the coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis.

To ensure that we are able to coordinate all our efforts effectively, Barnet Council is working with the Barnet Together partnership, and a task force of charities, faith groups and businesses to support vulnerable residents. We have set up this Community Help Hub to create a network of local support that will help our communities remain resilient during the COVID-19 lock down.

Here you can find information on how to help your community, where to find help in your community, and how to keep well and safe.

We will be updating this page daily with more information about where you can get help, and how you can get involved.


Discover Barnet – shop safely, shop local

Following a very challenging period for many, we are delighted to see Barnet’s shops in our local high streets, town centres, and shopping precincts open their doors again and welcome the safe return of their customers.

Explore our pages to meet some of the people behind our local businesses, read about the changes that have been made to make our public spaces safe and follow our guidance on shopping safely.
