Enfield Voluntary Action
What we offer
Rooted in our local community for more than a quarter of a century, our services have supported hundreds of community & charitable groups, and thousands of volunteers.
We share our knowledge, skills and expertise, and we learn about the needs of local residents from everyone we work with.
We help to build connections and strengthen participation; and we support anyone who wants to take part in building a resilient and inclusive local community.
We provide opportunities for people and groups to share, to learn, and to take positive, effective social and community action.
Positive local social action

EVA was established as a charity by local voluntary, community & charitable organisations in 1991.
EVA and the organisations it supports are volunteer-led by members of the community who give their time and energy to make life better for Enfield and its people. Trustees of voluntary and community organisations (including EVA’s trustees and board of directors) are not paid. Some organisations employ paid staff, some services are provided entirely by volunteers.
