Together in Barnet’s aim is to tackle homelessness in the London Borough of Barnet. The charity runs a night shelter within the local community to house rough sleepers from October to March each year. Together in Barnet works closely with the day centre, Homeless Action in Barnet, to provide for the needs of the most vulnerable in the Barnet community.
For the last few years, St James Church has been one of the night-shelter venues, hosting up to 17 homeless guests on Friday evenings – providing a cooked evening meal, breakfast, plenty of tea and coffee and a warm welcoming environment.
We’re generally involved in the shelter between January and March every year – if you’d like to be one of our large team of volunteers please contact our office and we’ll put you in touch with the co-ordinator.
