We are Croydon – The Council and its partners have a vision, developed in consultation with over 20,000 residents and businesses, that by 2040 Croydon will be London’s most enterprising borough that fosters ideas, innovation and learning and provides skills, opportunity and a sense of belonging to all.
The Community Strategy is the overarching strategy for the borough. It sets our overall strategic direction, the priorities and outcomes we will focus on, and provides the framework for delivery that will guide and direct the activity of Local Strategic Partnership boards.
Croydon’s Corporate Plan for 2018-22, reflects the administration’s Manifesto committments. It sets out the Council’s priorities and looks at the need for change in our service delivery to take a more preventative approach; improving outcomes for our residents, businesses and communities.
The Croydon Observatory provides access to data and information about Croydon. It is an information sharing, mapping and reporting website that can be used by anyone.
Opportunity and Fairness Commission was launched in January 2015 to identify existing assets, understand the local challenges and communities’ concerns and priorities, and propose solutions and engage with those who can deliver them to create a fairer and better place to live for everyone.
Council’s Equality Policy 2016-20 sets out the Council’s approach to fulfilling its statutory equality duty as a Public Sector employer under s149 of the Equality Act 2010. The Council’s equality objectives are set out in our Opportunity and Fairness Plan which outlines the key areas of focus for the council and its partners from public, community, faith, voluntary and business sectors.
In 2017 the Small Business Commission investigated and recommended actions to boost the growth and success of local small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).
The Commissioning Framework sets out the Council’s commissioning principles and our approach to ensuring the services we deliver (either in house or by working with our suppliers) meet local needs and deliver value for money.
Below is a list of the key programmes, campaigns and initiatives supported by Croydon Council. The purpose of those programmes is to support the wider strategic vision of the Council. The Council wants its partners to be aware of those priorities and where appropriate evidence active support for those through their (and their supply chain) delivery of social value. They also enable the Council to work with its partners in the public, community, voluntary and business sectors to deliver the highest standard of equalities and inclusion practices and secure better outcomes for local people.
