EVA provides services to local voluntary and community organisations in Enfield
Enfield Council funds EVA's core (Chief Executive, Finance and Administration), the Information Service, Community Accountancy, and Volunteer Centre Enfield.
City Bridge Trust has provided funding for the Development and Funding Advice Service to develop monitoring and evaluation skills in the local voluntary and community sector. These skills are required to assist organisations in their fundraising efforts.
Jeremy Mayhew, Chairman of the City Bridge Trust, said
"Enfield Voluntary Action delivers a valuable service for charities and organisations working in Enfield. It supports essential operational and financial functions, helping to build the capacity and sustainability of charities in the borough. Helping organisations to improve their evaluation skills, for example, enables them to demonstrate clearly to funders the difference they are making to key stakeholders."
The Tudor Trust has provided funding for the Development and FundIng Advice Service to develop
a workshop programme which enhances parents skills to work together and provide informal pre-school playgroups. The Development and Funding Advice Manager is working with local Children's Centres and a local consultancy group (Aspire) on this project.
We have been able to access small grants from the office of the Mayor of London and City of London Corporation to work with local organisations to increase and develop youth volunteering. SEGRO provided a small grant to support ongoing projects during 2015 -16.
EVA uses training course charges to cover core training (Trustee Roles, Effective Meetings, and Note Taking), room booking and refreshments costs.
