Borough of Barnet, Barnet Council Community Report
The Borough of Barnet, situated in North London is home to thousands of people, a large percentage of which is made up of youth living in Barnet. This report is the result of an in-depth investigation into the quality and quantity of community facilities that are available for the youth in the present day, as well as an insight into room for improvement.
Common community facilities available for the youth include many different youth club organisations, in particular the well-known and popular Scouts and Guides groups, as well as several others. These are situated across the whole of Barnet, many of which are hugely popular and have at least 20 youths attending each group. These groups are often situated in public buildings maintained by the council: public halls, libraries, youth centres as well as spanning to sports centres. These groups are a popular ‘time out’ location for young people, many of which who go to these clubs as recreation or in look for extra-curricular activities.
