Developed over several months and with the involvement of 17 community organisations from across Barnet including Barnet Carers and Barnet Multi-Faith Forum, the Barnet Voluntary Sector Manifesto is a declaration of beliefs, commitments, and ambitions for organisations that serve the borough of Barnet. The aim of the Manifesto is to create a better understanding and deeper cross-sector collaboration between organisations working within Barnet. By signing up to the Manifesto, groups and service providers agree to adhere to the values within the document. A growing number of organisations, large and small, have signed up to the Barnet Voluntary Manifesto and the Manifesto has the support of London Borough of Barnet Council and its partners. A full list of organisations committed to the principles of the manifesto can be found on the Inclusion Barnet website.

Representatives of groups, service providers and businesses can sign up to the Barnet Voluntary Manifesto at the Inclusion Barnet website. Organisations can also learn more about the organisation support offered by Barnet Together and sign up for Barnet Together newsletters detailing funding and training opportunities for groups based in or serving the borough of Barnet.
