Overview

Our Life Chances Strategy sets out our approach on how we will work to improve young people's lives in Barnet and increase their opportunities to succeed. A draft of this strategy was approved by Children, Education and Safeguarding Committee for public consultation in March, however when the COVID-19 pandemic struck we had to review our strategy. This version takes into account the impact of COVID-19 which has disrupted the life of every child in the country.

By improving life chances, we can have a profound effect on poverty and inequality enabling better outcomes for young people in the borough. The previous approach was captured in the Child Poverty Strategy set out in the Children and Young People’s Plan 2016-20.

Our new strategy is supported by our family friendly vision which is focused on making Barnet the most family friendly borough in London and an even better place for all families to live.

The strategy sets out the needs analysis for children and young people in Barnet and an action plan structured against our four key priorities.

  • Priority 1: Strengthening families and early years
  • Priority 2: Developing resilience and improving education
  • Priority 3: Delivering equal access to opportunities
  • Priority 4: Targeting support

To find our more about our plans, the detailed priorities and the actions we we have identified to help deliver our priorities, please read the strategy in full.
