Community Advice and café
Jim’s vision is to be the ‘hub of the community’. The volunteer team manage a free service offering advice for the community along with free refreshments for everyone. We have access to online service and can assist in form filling, phone calls and other advice, we can signpost to various local services too. We do anything from blue badges and energy bill advice to foodbank vouchers and phone calls to professional agencies.
We work closely with our local Police Safer Neighbourhood team so they can help with any crime prevention matters.
We also work closely with Chipping Barnet Foodbank and Barnet Council Fostering service.
Citizen’s Advice Barnet work with us, on site and are experts in benefits, debt, consumer, family and immigration queries.
We work closely with a Barnet Council and have become a:
- Dementia Champion
- Breastfeeding Safe Space
- Water Bottle Refill station
Our family worker, Paul, will be on hand to pray, talk and help sign post you to church activities or links to school or nursery workers. Rev. Laura or Rev. Jenny will be around to help with any spiritual needs and will be available to pray and talk about Jesus with people at the Café.
Wednesdays mornings, 9.30-12noon at St James church.
