The Old Enfield Charitable Trust

"Welcome to The Trust in Enfield

An independent charity serving the community living and working in the Ancient Parish

Mission Statement

We are an independent local charity serving the community living and working in the Ancient Parish of Enfield. We support individuals, families and organisations in financial need with dignity and respect.

We have been able to continue our work for more than 500 years thanks to the generous gifts of Enfield benefactors and the granting of a Royal Charter giving us the right to run Enfield Market.

How we help

By offering grants for household items

By helping people expand their opportunities through educational and training grants

By providing grassroots community organisations with specific funding for projects reflecting the diversity and vibrancy of Enfield

Apply for a grant

Should you find yourself facing financial difficulties and some unexpected expenses or needing help with education and training, you can apply for one of our Personal or Education Grants. We also have Community Grants for local groups and charities that have a great idea that will benefit the people of the Ancient Parish.

What do we fund

Need some help paying for a school trip, or medical equipment? Perhaps you really need a new bed, or a carpet after a flood, fire or accident. Our Personal Grants cover most things and on our Case Studies page you will find examples of our Community and Education grants.

History of the trust

Thanks to the generous gifts of local benefactors and past Kings of England, the Trust in Enfield has been supporting individuals, families and local organisations in financial need that live and work within the boundary of the Ancient Parish, for more than 500 years. We also have responsibility for a number of buildings in the Ancient Parish including The Kings Head, Barclays Bank and two Almshouses.

The Trustees

In all there are fifteen Trustees, two of whom are nominated by St Andrews Church and two more nominated by Enfield Council. The remaining 11 are elected as and when vacancies arise. Trust business is carried out by a series of committees, such as our Market Committee.

How to donate and why

Each year, thanks to the generous gifts of Enfield benefactors, The Old Enfield Charitable Trust administers around £250K in grants to those working and residing in the boundary of The Ancient Parish of Enfield….but we could always do more. Help us to help others as a regular giver, by leaving a legacy or through corporate giving.
