Enfield Island Youth and Community Trust* (EIYCT) was set up in 2003 to support young people who live on the newly developed Enfield Island Village. In 2009 the work expanded to include children aged 7-11 as there was no other provision for them. Quickly we created a transition group for 10-13’s so they could move between the groups. Then we started a club for 4-7’s as well as a Community Garden, Family Events and trips. Over the last year we have seen many young people and parents volunteering to help run clubs.
We realised that EIYCT no longer describes what we are or what the community can engage in. That’s why we are calling ourselves ‘enact’. Enact is a single name that runs across the whole provision – that describes the ambition that can be supported through what can be participated in.
* For the avoidance of doubt enact/EIYCT is not to be confused with the Enfield Island Village Trust, which is a completely seperate entity.
