STOP PRESS: UPDATES

LATEST UPDATE: 30TH NOV 2018

The L.B Enfield has extended the Disability Information and Advice Service(DIAS) funding until February 2018 while they reconsider the Advice and Information Tender. Our waiting list for help to complete form is now back open. Unfortunately our appeals list remains closed.

Enfield Disability Action's funding for our advice services is facing cuts.

The DIAS and the Deaf Project service funding are at threat.

Enfield Disability Action’s funding for our advice services is facing cuts, this includes services we provide through the Disability Information and Advice (DIAS) and Deaf Project services. Enfield Councillors have called in this decision and will be reviewing it.  Unfortunately at EDA this is already impacting on our ability to provide a service. 

We will update you if there is any change to this position. Please accept our sincere apologies for this but it is due to circumstances currently beyond our control. 

Monday office closures and service updates

As of 8th May 2017 EDA offices will be closed to the public on Mondays. This is due to staff and volunteers having heavy workloads. In case of emergencies please contact Enfield Civic Centre on 0208 379 1000.

Successful Family Fund Award

I meet my EDA adviser on a monthly basis when she helps me sort out paperwork and any queries/issues I may have regarding my mum's care etc.
No amount of words can express my gratitude. She is a very unique individual; truly professional, sensitive, kind and generous. She has supported me through some very difficult and challenging times following my dad's death and subsequently, my mum's deteriorating physical and mental health. I can't imagine being without her and hope that our partnership will continue. She is a true asset to the profession and most importantly, to people like me who need guidance and support during some of life's most difficult challenges we all have to face...dealing with death and elderly /frail parents. We are never prepared for these heart wrenching experiences. I commend you and your team for the valuable work you do. I would most certainly want to continue working with my adviser.

I’ll look forward to meeting my new support worker and have no doubts as everyone that I’ve had the the pleasure to meet at EDA have been very pleasant and supportive. You really are a fantastic team.

Thank you for all your help, support and kindness over the last 5, 6 or 7 years (I can’t remember how long it’s been).

Thanks again
