EAWA

Our Mission Statement is ‘To support, care for, empower and improve the quality of life of older people, the local community and their families/carers living within the London Borough of Enfield and surrounding Boroughs’.

Charitable Objects:

  1. Provide appropriate communal facilities and qualified/trained staff to assist and manage services
  2. Organise leisure activities and recreational pursuits
  3. Promote education activities, and provide access to information and learning
  4. Organise activities, which promote health, wellbeing and improve quality of life

Through the provision of our services, we seek to enhance the lives of elderly people/the local community and their carers/families within the London Borough of Enfield and surrounding Boroughs who have need for such facilities by reason of age, infirmity, disablement or social isolation.

Approach

Our Management Style is consultative.

On a personal level Service Users have a care pathway which covers all stages from initial enquiry to that of being a regular at the EAWA day centre. This is updated in line with their needs and is an ongoing process.

On an operational level our day centre service users engage in Quarterly Forums at which they discuss the quality of EAWA’s service provision and the range of services being offered.

In addition to this we have an Advisory Committee which is made up of Service Users and is elected by them annually. The Advisory Committee may liaise with our Management Board if they are not satisfied with EAWA services, staff or the responses from the Managers entrusted to help them.

All our services are personalised because we consult our services users about services that will directly affect them, or changes that need to be made.
