Who it is for?

The Council operates day centres for older people that provide a friendly environment where you can enjoy making friends and participate in a variety of activities. You will be encouraged to be as independent as possible and to participate in the recreational activities on offer, such as discussion groups, quizzes, bingo, cookery, arts and crafts.

Transport to day care centres can be arranged through Enfield Borough Transport

Where it is available?

Local service (Enfield).

How to access or apply for it:

See contact details above.


Places are allocated following a Needs Assessment. Because we have to make sure that we provide services fairly and to those most in need, we use eligibility criteria to help us make decisions about who we can provide services to.

If your Needs Assessment shows that you are eligible for Council Social Care services, we will carry out a Financial Assessment to determine how much you may need to pay for your services. You will also be offered Direct Payments so you can arrange services yourself instead of the Council arranging them for you.

Required Customer Information
Date of birth, proof of address and identification documents are required prior to needs assessment

What to expect then:

Service Level Agreement and Turnaround

The Older People’s Assessment and Care Management Team aim to ensure that they contact people within 48 hours of a new referral. Following an assessment, if a service is required and the person meets the eligibility criteria, the service should be provided within 28 days.
