Services provided by local voluntary, community and charitable groups
Local services for residents with diverse needs which are provided by voluntary, community and charitable groups include social care, health, arts, sports, youth work, older people, environmental, housing and homelessness, tenants and residents associations, disabilities, mental health, addiction, volunteering opportunities, employment, social exclusion, equalities issues, and much more.
The voluntary, community and charitable sector brings together people from diverse communities and cultural backgrounds of all ages who share a determination to improve and develop the whole community through collective endeavour. EVA is proud to support these people and organisations who strive for excellence to make a difference in Enfield.
EVA and the organisations it supports are volunteer-led by members of the community who give their time and energy to make life better for Enfield and its people. Trustees of voluntary and community organisations (including EVA’s trustees and board of directors) are not paid. Some organisations employ paid staff, some services are provided entirely by volunteers.
EVA has been commissioned by the London Borough of Enfield to continue to provide services from July 2013 - September 2018.
