Enfield Carers Centre’s (ECC) core aim is to identify carers and support them both practically and emotionally to manage their own wellbeing and that of the people they care for. We provide services for carers who live in Enfield or care for someone who lives in Enfield.
As well as directly working with carers at the centre, ECC works in partnership with local GP practices, hospitals and schools and other support agencies to highlight the challenges faced by carers; to assist in the identification of common issues and assist with the implementation of good practice to help support them.
ECC’s services are available at a variety of locations across the borough including, libraries, community centres and residential homes.
We also provide a voice for carers via representation, by our team members and the recruitment of carers as champions, by participating on Partnership Boards and Carer Forums.
It is our ambition to be able to let carers know, via support work and information sessions, their options and rights when navigating health and social care and to achieve a healthy balance between their caring roles and own needs.
In recognition that some caring roles make it difficult for carers to attend our services we offer replacement care provision for carers, who meet eligibility criteria, and provide core services at a number of locations within the Enfield community.
The Centre accepts referrals from all sources, including self-referral. As long as the Carer has consented they will be contacted and registered by one of our Support Team; for details on how best to refer please contact us on 0208 366 3677, we would be happy to help.
