CCL supports Charities and Non-profit dealing with Homelessness, Anti-social behaviour (including knife crime), Mental Health and Hate Crimes and with continued expansion we hope to support many more. We are committed to helping residents become more involved with issues they feel passionately about.
Chronic homelessness has grown 106% since 2010 and while there are many Organisations working hard to end homelessness in Croydon they cant do it alone. Here you can find a list of Charities and Organisations that work in this area.
SOUTH NORWOOD COMMUNITY KITCHEN
South Norwood Baptist Church, 2 Oliver Ave, South Norwood, London SE25 6TY
We aren't doing anything new, simply bringing a great idea to our local community. We take unwanted food and donations from supermarkets and locals alike, cook it up and serve hot food in a social environment. Everyone is welcome, and we hope to reach some of those most in need. The aim is to bring people from all walks of life together to encourage community cohesion and break down barriers. We plan to expand our services and outreach work as we develop.
