About us

The Enfield Strategic Partnership (ESP) bring together key public sector organisations, local businesses, community and voluntary groups to work collectively to improve the quality of life for local people.

What we do

Our job is to improve the quality of life for everyone living, visiting, working, studying and doing business in Enfield .

Our second Community Strategy entitled “Enfield’s Future – A Sustainable Community Strategy for Enfield 2009 – 2019” (PDF, 1.2KB) puts the needs of the community at its heart and sets out how the partnership will work together to realise our vision and priorities for the future based on the views of local residents.

Above all, we are committed to improving the borough for the benefit for all.

How we work

There are a number of component parts that together will form the local strategic partnership for Enfield . The diagram below illustrates the structure of the partnership:

* Enfield Network references and includes the Thematic Action Groups (where they are continuing) as well as the wider network of statutory and non-statutory forums operating in Enfield, including Enfield Council.

** Area Based Partnerships refer to the emerging regeneration partnerships in Enfield led by Enfield Council that will address transformation of communities within a defined spatial area.
