One Barnet – Something a bit different!

Last night as part of my one barnet speech to the full Barnet Council I talked about our community coaches scheme which is working with some of the most ‘troubled’ families in Barnet.

This is a One Barnet scheme we are now moving into the second phase after a successful pilot and is developing real results.

A recent analysis of a set number of case studies showed a 45% reduction in chaotic behaviour of families following the intervention of a Community Coach. This coach coordinates work from across the council with the family as well as offering support and help. The coach comes directly from the community.

These results and other evidence have helped to create a business case to continue this already successful programme into the future, which is having a real impact on some of the most ‘troubled’ families in the borough.

I questioned why we need a referendum on projects such as this.
