Urgent Appeal for Funds for EAWA to help Purchase a Building

Enfield Asian Welfare Association (EAWA) is a non-profit-making registered charity established for 21 years within the borough of Enfield and surrounding areas.

We have strong credentials in the Health and Social Care field with a day care centre for Asian Elderly on 4 days a week with many activities, lunch, transport and care support. For the wider community, we also run 50 Plus services with a weekly Club that meets for activities and a Membership Club that meets once a month with a range of self-help health workshops and talks.

We are currently starting a new Social Hub project which aims to find isolated older people and give them the opportunity to meet at a venue in town centres to socialise and participate in activities together e.g. have coffee, lunch, go shopping with others, rather than being on their own.

Our day care clients have knitted hats and scarves that we have annually distributed to homeless people via the Crisis charity for the last 3 years.

Over the years we have run many time limited projects like Winter Parcels for older people living without heating and a hospital project for the carers of older people.

We are ISO9001 accredited for the last decade and had been investors in people accredited for 9 years.

We are a value led charity and believe in quality, responsibility, altruism and put our clients at the centre of our model of service delivery.

Our weakness is that our premises do not meet with the current or the future needs of EAWA. To develop and further strengthen our work, we wish to purchase our own building. This would create a centralised base from which to serve the community.

We are looking for a D1 Property – which has the right amount of space and location for us to reach our Borough wide clients and members.

We need your help and donations to create a building fund. Thus, when a suitable property is found we will be in a position to bid for it. Currently property costs are in excess of £1 million. Please donate & encourage others to do so, in what is a very valuable cause for our community.
