About us

The Eritrean Elder's Welfare Association (EEWA) has operated in RBKC since 2000. Initially set up by several elderly people from the Eritrean community, they intend to address the high levels of loneliness and isolation faced by their elders. As the majority of their service users came to the UK as refugees, many have ongoing war trauma, long-term injuries and have experienced human rights violations.

Aiming to facilitate greater levels of inclusion in their community, EEWA's volunteers regularly undertake home and hospital visits for their service users.

EEWA also arranges discussions that foster intergenerational links with the older and younger generations, encouraging young people to get involved with supporting community elders.

EEWA is currently run by volunteers.
