Enfield Turkish Cypriot Association's Home Care Service is aimed at assisting Turkish Speaking Elders and Disabled Persons, who are unable to carry out various everyday self care tasks themselves.
Supports is provided in the following areas:
Support for carers
is fully committed to raising the levels of achievement of the Turkish children
in Enfield. We believe it is important to teach our children their mother
tongue language and culture.
With this in mind ETCA was successful in obtaining a grant from the National Gallery Charities Board to set up an education consortium in the Borough in association with Southgate, Hazelwood, Oakthrope and Houndsfield Turkish Schools. Further information is available through the education Co-ordinator based at ETCA offices.
ELDERS' LUNCHEON CLUB
ETCA's Elders' Luncheon Club provides a friendly environment where Enfield's Turkish Cypriot elders can meet, dine together, talk and enjoy the company of a new found friendship every week.
The membership has grown from some 20 elders to 200. The club operates every Thursday from 12:00 noon to 03:00 pm at:Memorial Hall
The club is a real club in every real sense.
YOUTH & SPORT
Sporting and Cultural events are held to bring young Turkish speakers together at various venues in Enfield.
Etca is very aware that to address young people's need is to address the needs of every group in the future.
Our efforts have been to establish a regular drop-in-space for young people to meet on a regular basis to address not only the more leisurely needs but also the more serious issues.
