Croydon Community Leaders is a consultancy and engagement firm dedicated to empowering the Croydon community. Our mission is to provide the necessary tools, knowledge, and resources to improve public services, foster innovation, and promote community engagement.
In 2016, our organisation was co-founded by Renee Lord-Lindsay, a Marketing and Strategic Business Development Manager who happens to be a passionate advocate for community empowerment..
As an inspired individual, Renee drew inspiration from the historic "Black Wall Street" of Greenwood, Tulsa, in the 1920s. This thriving black entrepreneurial mecca, nestled within a segregated town, showcased the immense power of community unity and economic independence. Renee recognized the need to tap into this sense of community and create a movement that provided condensed financial support to independent businesses in Croydon.
