The Community at our heart

  • Valuing and respecting every individual

What we do

Because our staff live in the same communities in which they work, and have experienced the same or similar issues as families that need help, our most important ingredient is our ability to engage a family and build trust.

We work with the family to offer practical and intensive support to improve their situation, showing them what to do and empowering them to develop the confidence and skills to address issues themselves over time.

We assess the whole family’s needs and work with them to prioritise the areas that needs to be addressed. We support the whole family to acknowledge and accept the issues that are holding them back and impacting their children’s life chances.

What Our Clients say

EASE has been supporting me since 2006. I am a vulnerable person in the community and have been a single parent since 2005. The support I have received from EASE has been invaluable from counselling, support Groups, social events to accessing solicitor’s advice, practical help with forms and contact with Ealing Council. The Staff are extremely professional and supportive, they fully understand my circumstances.

Client G.
I have been accessing EASE services for a few years, they have been very supportive to me and my family. Both my children have additional needs and attend the Holiday Clubs which helps me a lot. My children love attending the Holiday Clubs and they have helped a lot to boost their confidence. The EASE team is very supportive of me whenever I need assistance. I am coping because of the help I receive from them.
Client L.
I started coming to EASE services with my parents when I was two years old. At that age I could not speak any English and my parents could not so they were unable to help me. At EASE I was helped to learn English, helped with school work, taught how to cook during the free cookery classes, taught how to sew in the sewing classes. All the support I received helped me to live life as an independent and strong woman. I am now doing a psychology degree.
Client J.

After staying home for 7 years looking after my two children as we could not afford childcare, I needed to start all over again searching for work as soon as they started school full-time. I had lost all my confidence and did not know where to start. A friend directed me to EASE, there I was offered a volunteer opportunity. I started as a Volunteer staff and in 2018 I was taken on as a full paid staff. I have regained my confidence, made new friends and learnt new skills.
