What the council is doing

Croydon council is working closely with partners such as the NHS, businesses and voluntary sector to do all we can to support the local community at this difficult time and ensure everyone can access the help that they need.

As a council our priority is to continue to deliver the vital public services residents depend on, and to safeguard and look after the most vulnerable in our communities.

Our frontline services such as waste and recycling collections, and adult and children’s social care have well-developed plans to minimise disruption and support those in most need during this time.
