Appeal

Urgent Appeal for Funds for EAWA:
New premises required as current one is due for demolishing in 2023!

Enfield Asian Welfare Association (EAWA) is a non-profitmaking registered charity established for 22 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 5 days a week with many activities, lunch, transport, and care support.

For the wider community, we run 50 Plus services. In addition to this, we offer the Social Hub project which finds isolated older people and gives them the opportunity to meet at Edmonton and Enfield Town libraries to socialise and participate in activities together e.g. Chair yoga/tai chi and then have coffee, lunch, go shopping with others, rather than being on their own. Plus, EAWA has received National lottery funding and is planning a series of workshop that you can register for.

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 over a 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 our premises: the hall we use will be demolished in 2023 and we thus Urgently need to raise funds to purchase our own building. This would create a centralised base from which to serve the community; develop and further strengthen our work and meet the future needs of EAWA clients.

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 plus funds to purchase such a property.

We need your help and donations to create a building fund. 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 whole community.
