The trustees of Homeless Action in Barnet (HAB) and Together in Barnet (TiB) are pleased to announce plans designed to improve the services offered to clients of both charities.

Subject to the appropriate governance and regulatory approvals, it is intended that the two charities will formally integrate as soon as is practicable. This will enable the existing emergency night shelter to be provided in a more streamlined and cost effective way. In addition, it will also create the scope for a more holistic service to be offered to people experiencing homelessness drawing on the volunteers who support the current TiB provision within the more structured framework provided by HAB.

Critically, there will be no visible change in the operation of the night shelter which will continue to be a core service of the integrated charity.
