What is DAZU?

DAZU is a registered charity, providing a range of recreational and educational activities for children and young people of all ages and all abilities.

All classes are taught by experienced and fully qualified teachers and helpers.

Concessionary and family rates can be offered to families who are unwaged or with more than one child attending a session.

We aim to provide a supportive environment for children who are disabled or who have learning difficulties. Please contact us if your child has specific support needs that require consideration when participating in classes and courses.

Young Carers' Project

DAZU runs the Young Carers Project for Enfield which was established in 1996 and we have a membership of 300 young carers and their families.

The Project was set up with the intention of supporting children who may have additional caring responsibilities within the home. Young carers could be caring for a relative who is disabled, has an illness or mental health problem. We provide a wide range of support to Young Carers, including:
