Learning for Life

A growing charity that aims to provide ‘Learning for Life’ opportunities for children and young people with learning difficulties and special educational needs, or who have been affected by illness, disability or poverty. 

About Us

Learning for Life is a local charity that had its beginnings in a unique partnership between West Lea School, which provides education for children with special educational needs, and its surrounding communities in Edmonton. Both the  school and the charity have grown and continued to grow to deliver services across the Borough of Enfield and both are now part of the Enterprise Cooperative Trust.

The charities aims remain the same:

  • We seek to support the education of young people with special needs by providing additional facilities for education 
  • We seek to prevent and relieve poverty by providing and identifying training and work experience opportunities for young people
  • We provide pathways to employment to give unemployed young people a job and a purpose 
  • We seek to promote social inclusion by preventing people from becoming socially excluded, relieving people who are socially excluded and assisting their integration into society across The London Borough of Enfield and the surrounding areas.

Our Shops

Each of our shops offer an appealing and constantly changing range of quality donated goods. All our shops make a crucial and significant contribution to the funding required to deliver our mission in the local community.

Our Vision

The Learning for Life Charity is a newly formed and growing charity that aims to provide ‘Learning for Life’ opportunities for children and young people with learning difficulties and special educational needs, or who have been affected by illness, disability or poverty. 

The Learning for Life Charity has been working with Nexus on a plan to regenerate part of Jubilee Park in Edmonton. The attached gives you some information and a link to a video which explains what we are trying to do. It also contains a link to a survey which we would like you to complete.

We are trying to elicit support for the proposed changes to the park, which include the installation of a running track, outdoor gym and a community café. Even if you do not live in the vicinity, please complete the survey as the plans will enhance the area that many of our school community come from.
