About EAWA

EAWA is a registered charity established in 1998 that provides services in the Health and Social Care field.
At the core of our organisation is our Day Care Centre service for elderly people. It has a mixed client group ranging from isolated/frail to more in ‘need of care’ and those with dementia.

EAWA also runs a number of additional services including Social Hubs at Edmonton Green Library, an online Social Hub, a telephone befriending service and an over 50’s Zoom chair-based Yoga.  In addition, we offer Dementia equipment where needed. We will also offer a service called “Better Health for the 50 plus” once funding is secured.

WORKING PRACTICES

On a personal level Service Users have a care pathway which covers all stages from initial enquiry to that of becoming a regular client 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.

Our Mission is:

To support, empower, and enrich the lives of Older Members in the Community.

Our Vision is:

To be a trusted and valued First Choice Provider of Inclusive services that creates an inspiring, positive, impact in the community.

Our Objectives are:

To alleviate isolation, we: 

1. Deliver appropriate facilities with qualified staff.
2. Deliver leisure activities and recreational pursuits.
3. Deliver educational activities that improve access to information and learning.
4. Deliver activities which promote health, well-being 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.
