E.A.S.E. aims to inspire, empower, enable and support personal and community development.
We are a community development organisation that provides access to information, activities, training, support services to individuals and groups of people living on estates in Ealing. We believe that, in order to provide an effective and sustainable response to the needs of the community, we need to meet the needs of individuals and how they effect change in the environment in which they live. This involves a wide range of services that are embedded with the ethos.
