About Us: EAWA is ISO9001 accredited and has been for over a decade. These National/International Quality Standards were attained in recognition of the sound processes and procedures that underpin our ways of working and because we believe that older people deserve to be supported by a Quality Organisation.
EAWA had been Investors in People accredited for 9 years and have imbedded systems to ensure high quality standards.
EAWA has a dedicated team that is fully committed to the welfare and wellbeing of its clients.
EAWA believes in Strong Values, High Quality and encourages dialogue at all levels so that there is Ownership, Responsibility and Continuous Improvement in how its work is shaped.
EAWA would like to improve its premises, ideally locating office and day centre in a single venue. This will enable it to develop more services that the community needs.
