Together with Enfield Council Neighbourhood Regeneration team, we will be holding drop-in sessions on the Joyce and Snells Estate to provide residents with information on where they can get support for their health and social care needs. The estate is based in one of the most deprived wards in Enfield.

The regeneration team at Enfield Council oversees the development of regeneration programmes across Enfield, including new areas of housing, commercial space, community facilities, and key infrastructure like transport. They work closely with local communities to ensure their voices are heard.   

Background 

Residents from the estate recently voted to go ahead with the council’s regeneration plans for the Joyce and Snells estate. The council’s initial door-to-door discussions, facilitated by people from the regeneration team, discovered that local people were experiencing a wide range of health-related issues, from a lack of food to loneliness.  

Initially, we supported the team by providing resources to pass on to residents, including support groups and signposting information. We will be helping with a more physical presence on the estate itself once a week, offering a safe space for people to come and seek information and guidance about health and care services and the support available to them. 

To hear from more local residents, we will also be holding a series of local drop-in sessions. The sessions are being organised to find out how accessible local health and care services are, to understand local people’s experiences, and to hear about what’s affecting their health and wellbeing.
