Charity’s objectives

To promote, support and develop local Neighbourhood Care Groups within the London Borough of Croydon for the relief of those who are isolated and vulnerable within the community.

Core Values

Neighbourhood Care Groups offer people help, support and information and the opportunity to volunteer in the community.  We believe that by creating links between people this reduces social isolation and enables them to help each other improve their quality of life.

Vision
