‘Enfield Now’ is an ideal platform to help people promote and deliver exciting community projects in Enfield. Whether you are part of a local organisation, community group or are a local resident - this is your opportunity to get your brilliant idea off the ground and make it reality – with the help of crowd funding. "Enfield Now is about empowering people to creatively develop and support projects that will enhance our towns, parks and communal spaces. We would like Enfield residents to look closely at how they think they can add value to local communities. Those with the right amount of creativity and drive will be given the full support of Spacehive and Enfield Council every step of the way. Whatever the project we ask that they are fun, exciting, accessible, promote volunteering, boost quality of life and enhance the local economy." Enfield Council's Leader, Cllr Nesil Caliskan There is a deadline of the 22nd April to get involved in the current round. See below for more info!

Our Journey

Axis Educational Support Programme
Axis Educational Support Programme joined Enfield Now5 days ago

Half of clever students from poor backgrounds fail to secure top GCSE grades, leaving them without the basics they need to access further education or secure a good job (The Sutton Trust). Action needs to be taken to combat this “wasted talent” and to ensure disadvantaged students who performed well in primary school are able to fulfil their potential later on in school. Axis aims to raise the attainment of children from low income homes across Enfield, so that they can turn their potential into success at school and beyond. We do this by identifying and supporting pupils from early ages with our intervention clubs and intensive courses on core subjects as well as enriching our curriculum with after school clubs and fun activities so that our Saturday School is both challenging and enjoyable for every learner. A life changing experience is targeted for every single student, which enables a bright future for individuals, a better local economy and a more sustainable Britain for all.

Activity Trail for Dogs Jubilee Park N9
Activity Trail for Dogs Jubilee Park N9 joined Enfield Now1 month ago

Jubilee Park is in Edmonton, North London one of the most deprived and diverse areas in London. It is a beautiful park that is dog friendly and kept, apart from the occasional vandalism, to a high standard; it is a haven for local residents. We are planning to build one element as a start of the project. This will be 2 steel hoops with high and low level jumps. The equipment will be made of steel and permanently installed within Jubilee Park. This will enrich the activities in the Park for dogs and their owners which will not only be fun for the dogs but promote a healthy lifestyle for the owners. The park has a unique not for profit Dog Training Club where puppies and dogs learn basic training, socialisation and park etiquette. The Dog Club had the support of the local Council, Councillors and local Metropolitan Police as well as the Friends. We now want to add to the facilities that we provide and build an activity trail.
