The HAB Centre is a place of change and provides services for homeless and vulnerably housed individuals who have a connection with Barnet.

HAB does not provide housing but we will provide support to access various housing options in and around the London Borough of Barnet.

When you come to the Centre you will be made welcome and a member of staff will sit down with you and try to understand the issues you are having. Together you will then work on a plan of support and they will help you to address your issues.

We are run by a small staff team supported by a team of volunteers and the local community.

If you are housed and need help to maintain your tenancy or are having problems we will refer you to the Outreach Barnet Duty Worker in the day centre

Those who do not have a connection with Barnet will be signposted to more appropriate services.
