Young Barnet Foundation is a membership movement set up to help grow local activities and opportunities for children and young people across the London Borough of Barnet. 

We are committed to improving the life chances of all our children and young people living in Barnet. We believe that children and young people need opportunities for learning and fun, beyond family and formal education, building strong trusted relationships with adults and their peers in the wider community; leading to broadened networks, increased confidence and life skills.

Young Barnet Foundation's work is underpinned by generous leadership; encouraging members, partners and residents to work together for the greater good. 


Being generous is not only about money but time, knowledge, skills, information, and power. It is about creating a space to trust, and to collaborate so that all children and young people are the true beneficiaries.  


Together we can help create safer, stronger, more connected communities so that all our residents thrive but it’s too big a job to do alone and that is why we need your support.
