If you’d like to speak to someone about the support available for residents in Enfield, come and visit our Community Hubs. Our Community Hubs are based in some of our libraries and other convenient pop-up spots. Our ambassadors meet residents face-to-face and help to improve money, jobs and skills, health and wellbeing, and housing stability.

In our libraries, you can access free Wi-Fi, PCs, scanning, printing and photocopying facilities and enjoy one of our many clubs and social groups for children and adults, ranging from knitting, chess, Lego, book clubs and ESOL classes. You can sit back and relax with a book or use one of our convenient study tables complete with power points.
