Outreach and educational services for Barnet

Brook has been commissioned by Barnet Council to deliver free Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) workshops to young people in community settings, and free professionals training.

Sessions for schools


Usually one hour long, our school assemblies are centred around topical issues such as healthy relationships, body image, self-esteem, sexual health and online safety. They include signposting to Barnet services that provide further support for young people.

Education workshops

Workshops are available on all aspects of sexual health and relationships, as well as emotional health and wellbeing. They cover topics such as consent, relationships, harassment, sexting, CSE and much more. The sessions always include signposting.

Staff training

Training for teaching staff can be delivered as part of your inset training days, or twilight sessions, and can include topics such as:

  • Delivering mandatory RSE
  • Sexual Health, Information, Empowerment, Learning and Development
  • The Sexual Behaviours Traffic Light Tool

Community outreach sessions

Brook works with community groups and organisations in Barnet to embed outreach and drop-in sessions where our teams provide information and advice around HIV awareness and prevention. We also signpost people to appropriate services and distribute resources including educational pamphlets and condoms.

Point of Care Testing

In Barnet, trained professionals also go to community locations to test for HIV where you can get the results within less than 30 minutes. This is known as Point of Care Testing or rapid HIV testing. To complete the test, a sample of saliva or a small spot of blood from a finger is taken. This sample does not need to be sent to a laboratory and the result is available within a few minutes.

Do you own a community space in Barnet?

Help us to continue to fight HIV in the community by lending us a space to carry out Point of Care Testing. If this is something you’d like to support us with, please get in touch by emailing barnet.hiv@brook.org.uk

Volunteer with us

Brook is looking for Barnet residents who would like to volunteer on the team as Community Champions. These individuals will be trained and supported to cascade positive health messages to residents of the Barnet community.
