care

From supporting Croydon’s carers to giving older people a sense of community, comfort and joy in later life – we want to ensure everyone in our community is looked after with care and compassion.

support for carers

More than 30,000 people living in Croydon care for a friend, family member, partner, or neighbour. Our Carers Information Service is here to help, offering information, advice and support to Croydon's carers.

care for older people

From day care to full time nursing, we run a range of different homes and services designed to help older people maintain their independence as much as possible within a safe, caring, and community focused setting.

caring for older people

We run a range of different care settings in Croydon through Whitgift Care – from sheltered living to full-time end of life care. While they all tailor to slightly different needs, they all share the same ethos of bringing people together to create a genuine community where residents can live life to the fullest.
