The Enfield Dispatch team: Penny, Klaudia, David, Jonathan (back row); James, Paige (front row)

Enfield Dispatch is the borough’s free community newspaper. Launched in October 2018, we are a not-for-profit publication that exists to hold authority to account and offer a platform enabling local people to highlight what matters to them.

The Dispatch is made available to pick up for free at various locations around the borough. It is funded by advertising and membership; all income is spent on the continuing production of the paper. If you would like to help support us please find out more about our membership scheme or consider purchasing an advertisement for your organisation. You are also welcome to write for us about projects you are involved with, campaigns you are running, or events you are organising.

The Dispatch is published by Social Spider Community Interest Company, which also runs north-east London newspapers Tottenham Community Press and Waltham Forest Echo.
