Health Work


Much of our work is directly health focused. We provide advice on access to local health services. We are closely involved in policy work with local health authorities that impacts on asylum seekers and refugees, for example the access to and use of interpreters, overseas charging and the provision of counselling and psychotherapeutic services for adults and young people.


Barnet Refugee Service is consulted by Barnet Primary Care Trust on strategies to meet our client group’s needs. We deliver presentations to health professionals at conferences and seminars raising awareness of health issues, particularly relating to mental health, that affect asylum seekers and refugees. We provide health access and health promotion workshops, refugee awareness training sessions, and train smoking cessation advisors.

A Message From Our Patron

Last year I visited the Barnet Refugee Service, and met the trustees, the staff and some of the volunteers and clients.  I was moved and impressed by the real difference BRS has made to so many lives.
