Homeless Action In Barnet

The HAB Centre is a place of change and provides services for homeless and vulnerably housed individuals.

Clients who come to the Centre are made welcome and a member of staff sits down with them to try to understand the issues they are having. Together they then work on a plan of support.

The Centre provides a wide range of services to meet practical needs as well as advice and advocacy on a number of issues.

HAB has two Tenancy Support Services and Primary Health Care is also provided.
