Croydon Neighbourhood Care Association (CNCA)

Croydon Neighbourhood Care Association (CNCA) logo

Croydon Neighbourhood Care is an umbrella organisation for neighbourhood care across the London Borough of Croydon. Working to meet the needs of isolated, vulnerable and frail people within the borough, we support local neighbourhood care organisations (member groups) in bringing services and advice to vulnerable adults within Croydon.

Our member groups are independent and offer a wide range of practical assistance and care to residents in their area. Some work  with people in their own home, some run day centres and lunch clubs. All link volunteers, who want to help with other local residents in need of assistance, with the aim of reducing isolation and need in the community. None of the groups provide personal care services.
