Enfield Community Well-being Hub

Stroke Action By Stroke Action

We are local health advocates keen to transform a disused Community Hall in an isolated Park into a space that residents can proudly come together to socialize, keep active, healthy, and happy.

Enfield Delivery stage

pledged of £21,238

Sorry this project was unsuccessful, we did not reach our fundraising goal.

We plan to renovate the Community Hall at the Visitor Centre in Pymmes Park. The existing Hall is used to provide support services to stroke survivors in Stroke Action but it is run-down and needs to be refurbished. We want to regenerate and re-purpose it into a shared civic space for well-being, recreational and nature reserve facilities at the heart of a local park of historical significance.This will widen reach beyond people affected by strokes to include adults with long term health conditions, older people, at risk individuals and residents that will just visit to participate in activities or buy refreshments, and young people that want to volunteer. The selection of the project is based on outcomes of Department of Health Social Returns On Investment evaluation of Stroke Action services which recommend that people with other conditions will benefit if they have access to the services that we offer. Our aim is to create a 'holistic' Well-being Hub for the Community.

What we'll deliver:

  • Engage the Community - residents, businesses, schools, voluntary organisations, faith groups
  • Recruit and up-skill residents as Volunteers to support well-being activities - adults, students
  • Transform the Community Hall to make it fit for purpose - painting, signage, lighting, purchase well-being resources
  • Create flyers, posters and banners to publicise the project
  • Develop project website, Facebook and Twitter to help us conduct print and social media marketing campaign
  • Launch and pioneer the first 'holistic' community based well-being hub in the borough

Why it's a great idea:

Pymmes Park is poorly used by residents and is considered deserted, isolated and a lonely place to be in. This project will: Celebrate and strengthen the special character of Pymmes Park Give the Visitor Centre a new lease of life Demonstrate the potential of the Visitor Centre as a well-being resource in Enfield borough. Increase resident’s use of Pymmes Park to help combat loneliness and isolation Give residents lasting skills and opportunities as Volunteers Make participating residents to feel welcome, involved, active and healthy Achieve a wider social good by widening access to well-being hub for all residents Eliminate the negative perceptions of Pymmes Park and promote the enjoyment of the attractive nature, well-being and recreational facilities that will be available to residents - stroke survivors, carers, adults with long term health conditions, older people, at risk individuals, diverse residents, Voluntary organizations, businesses, the Council.

Steps to get it done:

  • Engage and up-skill residents as Community Champions able to use skills from hobbies and employment to lead activities
  • Seek the support of local Councilors and MPs for the project.
  • Use Eventbrite to encourage ticket take up and to gauge interest
  • Commission and upgrade the toilets to meet disability legislation
  • Develop project website, Facebook, Twitter. Create flyers, posters, and banners to publicize the project
  • Launch annual Fundraising Gala to raise funds to support the mission of the ‘Well-being Cafe’ and the vital activities
  • Launch the Well-being Cafe to operate three days a week in the Visitor Center, inside Pymmes Park
  • Paint and up-lift the Visitor Center including painting, signage, lighting, security and purchase activity resources
  • Partner with local VCS, Tottenham Hotspur, Park Runs and independent consultants to support delivery of the activities
  • Recruit and train 10 volunteers through the Enfield Volunteer Centre
  • Stroke Action will project manage the "Well-being Centre"
  • The volunteers will help to market, publicize and support the peer-led-activity groups

Locally, community based support services are mostly Council, VCS, or Private Sector led. The Enfield Well-being Hub will change this by facilitating groups of residents to start their own peer-to-peer support activities in a safe place where community centered sharing, learning and growing can occur. Common interest peer-led activities will include: art & craft, befriending, bowling, cycling, exercise, football, gardening, gym, lunch club, park run, tennis, tai chi, yoga We will offer free health awareness talks, health campaign events, self-management workshops, and social networks. We will drive sustainability by operating a Well-being Promotion Top Shop which will market cost effective items - cold drinks, tea/coffee, gift items, well-being resources e.g. steps counter pedometer, exercise thera bands, eat well plate, calorie calculator, BP Monitor. We will collaborate with In - Kind Direct to help residents secure well-being resources for their enjoyment at a very low price.
