Activities

Did you know that being active and participating in events will improve your wellbeing? It can also help build your confidence and improve your social skills to feel less lonely and isolated.

Through the commissioned Wellbeing service, we can link you to lots of different activities available in Barnet. Some of the activities include classes, workshops, and courses which you can participate in and are provided by different charities, leisure centres, and other organisations.  They are delivered in relaxed and informal settings where you can develop new interests and form friendships to improve your wellbeing and recovery. Outside of the Hub, there are some fantastic activities available from organisations across Barnet, and we have included some of them below.
