My name is Tom and Enfield Parent Engagement Panels.

What has been achieved so far? Brought new talent to the Dugdale Centre, met with schools and the wider community, wowed audiences with four nights of performances, promoted the project across the Borough of Enfield, run workshops in schools and the community, and assisting with presentations for Safer Internet Day.

The Parent Engagement Panel (PEP) is a parent network with over 250 parents involved. PEP members meet regularly in different locations across Enfield including Honilands School, Angel Community Centre, Bowes Children’s Centre, Woodpecker School and Lavender Children Centre. They discuss issues, hear from guest speakers, find out about services for parents, access training such as first aid and child protection, make friends, and support each other.

Last week I had the good fortune to present to three of the PEP branches: Bowes, Enfield Town and Honilands and it was great to get everyones concerns and the positivity for the project is so uplifting.

“The presentation was really informative and it was great to see everyone really engaging with it!  

Hopefully the next three area meetings will be just as good”.

Crowdfunder for the Education Project finishes…

Thank you to Ruth McConnell, Janice Martucci, Lou Rogers, Geraldine and Anna Zannides for your most gererous support.


For all their support on our recent crowdfunding scheme, the money is very welcome the spreading of the the project priceless…Thank you.

We want to use the education pack to get across some of the ideas developed through the course of the project, while at the same time getting the ideas and opinions from both teenagers and adults from a wide section of the community. The pack will also be available online so that it can become a living resource as the project grows.

Your contribution  can make all difference because… not only we be able to meet with all of the community as planned, it will give those communties a voice and a sense of ownership. Furthermore we will be able to produce hard copy for schools, colleges, libraries and community

1. Talk to your family, friends and colleagues about the project.
