Enfield Dispatch is the borough’s free community newspaper. It includes local news, features about community projects and campaigns, comment and opinion on what’s happening in the borough, interviews with local people, and previews of local events.

The paper is published by Social Spider Community Interest Company, which runs two other papers in north-east London – Tottenham Community Press and Waltham Forest Echo – on a not-for-profit basis. The Dispatch relies on advertising revenue to cover production costs but all income is reinvested in the continuing success of the paper.
