EAWA has been part of the Co-op Local Community Fund over the past year. This funding phase has now closed. Coop are checking the final figure and by 5th November EAWA will know how much Enfield Asian Welfare Association Ltd will receive in total. Then there will be a handover of funds by end of November 2019.
EAWA is also fundraising from other sources, for the Social Hub project. Once we have collect sufficient funds, we will set up the project in the Local Community.
EAWA has enjoyed being part of the Coop fund, and want to Thank the Coop and their members, for their support.
About the Project
By choosing Satellite locations at Enfield Town Library and Edmonton Mendip House or Green Towers and advertising in Community networks, Sheltered Homes, Older Peoples Clubs, Over 50’s Forum, Libraries, Coffee Shops, Post Office, etc. we will find and bring older people together and help form networks, social groups. They can share time going shopping together, having a coffee/meal or participate in tailored activities like chair-based yoga. We want to support the vulnerable and isolated elderly people in the community, so that they become a part of a network, and are not alone. We will be working with the above to deliver the project, increasing cooperation.
