We are building community resilience in Enfield in response to the coronavirus crisis.
This is a challenging time for everyone. We want to help local people to support one another and provide essential services to people who need it.
Enfield Council and Enfield Voluntary Action have brought together key local partners and organisations so that we have a coordinated effort across our borough to organise volunteers and those who need help.
This includes our local NHS partners, Enfield Carer’s Centre, Age UK, Citizens Advice Enfield. In the coming days we plan to link up with many more local organisations and groups so that we can build on the fantastic work already being done across the borough.
It is important that all our efforts to help those in need are organised through the local authority so that we can act in line with a spread prevention approach. We are working with our local NHS partners and many community charities.
This is your first stop to find out how you can get involved or access help.
