About Us

CommUNITY Barnet is an award-winning, multi-borough national charity based in London with a national reputation. Currently delivering services at a regional level we have an aspiration to grow bigger by leading innovative partnerships, harnessing the creativity of residents and supporting community organisations building on our 40 years of success, experience and track record of delivery. We are the umbrella organisation for the local voluntary and community sector (VCS) in Barnet. Established in 1979, we have been supporting and building capacity to voluntary and community groups, charities and faith groups across the borough. We promote partnership and consortium working to ensure Barnet has a thriving and sustainable sector.

No one organisation can solve society’s challenges but collectively the voluntary, community and social enterprise sector is powerful when it comes together with other sector organisations. We strongly believe volunteering is the heart of civil society and nurturing social action through different partnerships is vital for sustaining society in times of challenge and change. The third sector can provide community cohesion by bringing together residents, communities and organisations to form creative solutions to improve the wellbeing of local communities and help sustain society in times of continued austerity.

Our Vision

A society where the passions and energy of residents, communities and organisations can come together to contribute to causes they believe in and to design creative solutions which improve the outcomes for all.
