We're a local charity working in the community to support older people, their families and carers. We want everyone to be able to love later life.
Who we are
Age UK Enfield is an independent local charity. We've been working in the local community to help older people for 30 years. We have 40 dedicated staff and over 100 volunteers helping us to deliver services and activities for older people in Enfield.
Where you can find us
Our main office is based in Ponders End Library and and our day centre is based in Houndsfield Road in Edmonton.
How we are funded
We rely on your support to keep serving the community. We are supported by donations from the public and some charitable grants.
What we do
We give advice
Our trained advisors offer free information and advice to older people and their families. In 2016 our advisers helped local older people to claim over £500,000 that they were entitled to.
We offer home help
We offer home support services to help with shopping and cleaning. We help over 100 older people to get their food shopping every month.
Our volunteer befrienders visit lonely older people in the community who have no one to talk to. In 2016 our volunteers visited 300 older people who would otherwise be alone.
We provide activities
Our day centre has a wide range of activity groups and events, such as lunch clubs and exercise classes, giving older people the opportunity to keep fit, socialise, or learn a new skill.
