Enfield Voluntary Action is known as EVA. We help people & groups access knowledge, skills & resources to make a difference in our Borough.
Workshops are held across the Borough in accessible venues and, initially, provide a free 12 week course, with a crèche, called ‘Doing It For Themselves’. For those who complete workbooks and 10 hours volunteering in the 'Stay & Play' Group, the course is NCFE accredited. Participants do not have to seek accreditation to benefit from this training.
Mums and Dads, or other full-time carers, develop skills in budgeting and planning, team-working, safeguarding, leadership, conflict resolution, paediatric first aid, mentoring, and food hygiene.
All ‘graduates’ of the course receive a certificate and are empowered to set up their own weekly ‘Play and Stay’ groups for local parents, helping to build strong volunteer community networks of support.
An accredited training & volunteer programme for parents to set up their own Stay & Play groups in the London Borough of Enfield. (Devised by EVA & Funded by National Lottery Reaching Communities Fund.)
Six previous particpants on the programme talk about what it meant to them in the video below.
