Barnet Giving is a local charity project that provides time, skills and money to support local good causes. It brings together local people, community groups, charities and businesses to make Barnet a better place to live and work.
Barnet Giving is led by Inclusion Barnet and is working in partnership with CommUNITY Barnet, which supports, promotes and co-ordinates Barnet’s voluntary and community sector.
Based on successful similar projects in other London boroughs, Barnet Giving develops local fundraising for local groups and projects, addressing the most pressing needs.
We believe that it is vital for us as disabled people to look outwards, and challenge perceptions that we can only ever be passive recipients of care. In fact, we believe that disabled people are uniquely placed to apply their expertise in overcoming barriers by working for a more equal society for all. We think disabled people really understand exclusion, and understand that a fair and just society is better for everybody. That’s why we’re leading Barnet Giving. We think it’s the first time that a disabled people’s organisation has taken one of the leading roles in such a project, but for us it’s a key piece of work.
