We are delighted to be one of Four Crystal Palace businesses to be nominated as Finalists in the 2022 Croydon Business Excellence Awards.
This is a real boost for the local area rebuilding after lockdown and a testimony to the support of our residents, the services we all provide and the support we give.
Working at a micro level, its sometimes easy to forget the impact we have in the wider economy and given the crisis in Croydon over the last few years it is nice to be able to celebrate the success of local, independent businesses and social enterprises.
To state our case, we work daily with older people, vulnerable adults and carers providing access to and building confidence with technology.
We provide classes, workshops, drop-ins and critical support in the home.
We work with both social prescribers and community leaders to reach the people most in need but also to help identify other areas of support such as with mental health and the cost of living so partnership work and a duty of care are essential.
As a team we are constantly evaluation and adapting the way we work to provide a better service and to also create opportunities for work and volunteering.
As a fairly new and growing organization we are really proud of this nomination as it really establishes us locally.
So, please, vote for us here
