Easingwold District Community Care Association (EDCCA)

Police House, Church Hill, Easingwold, EASINGWOLD


About

Our aim is for Easingwold and District to be a true Community where all residents have a good quality of life, a sense of wellbeing and belonging: where needs are met and everyone feels part of a caring and supportive environment.

We deliver our vision by providing and co-ordinating support for people in our community to enable them to live independent lives. By working in partnership with other organisations and our network of volunteers we identify people’s needs and meet them through a diverse range of services.

Where we cannot meet this need, we provide information, advice and signpost other agencies and services.

Our Main activities are:

A Community Car Scheme

A Community Minibus

A Day Centre

“Woven Branches” Dementia Day Service

Meals on Wheels

A Carers Sitting Service

A Befriending Service

A Volunteer Service

Transport to the York against Cancer minibus 

In addition to these key services, EDCCA co-ordinates ad hoc peer support groups such as Knit and Natter and a Crossword Club.
