Barnet Together has a clear vision: A better Barnet for all those who live and work in the borough, based on real partnership and active collaboration. One way that we will achieve this vision is by bringing the sector together, to showcase the already great work being undertaken by the sector and also promote new opportunities for collaboration. This conference will allow us to do just that.
