Name of creator(s): Enfield Wel-care


Administrative/Biographical history:

Enfield Wel-Care operated within that borough as an inter-denominational Christian organisation providing social work, help and support in whatever field it was necessary. A great deal of time was devoted to helping unsupported mothers both before and after the birth of their child. Projects included Night Stop Service, Enfield Bereavement Service, Enfield Refugee Action Group, Single Homeless Project and Enfield Church and Industry Group, from 1985 known as the Enfield Christian Social Responsibility Association.

By the early 1980s it was felt that Wel-Care was too small to continue in isolation. On 25 March 1986 it was dissolved and merged with the Enfield Christian Social Responsibility Association as the Family Care Department.

Records of Enfield Wel-Care, 1944-1987, including minute books; annual reports; papers relating to fundraising; newsletters; financial accounts; correspondence; papers of the Chairman; pamphlets; and papers relating to the winding up of Enfield Wel-Care.
