Welcome

Welcome to EDCCA

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

Minibus trips

Meals on Wheels

A Carers Sitting Service

A Befriending Service – in person and via the telephone

Prescription collection and delivery

Shopping collection and delivery

Food Bank and Food Share

Hub Club for people living with Dementia – runs Tuesdays and Fridays

Citizens Advice homeConsumer Education resources

We produce consumer education resources on a range of consumer issues. The materials are free to download. The activities are designed for advisers/ educators/ group leaders to use to raise awareness of consumer rights and responsibilities and for learners to develop the skills and confidence to deal with consumer issues.

We raise funds to support all our services to help people in the community.

Please visit our justgiving page at: https://www.justgiving.com/edcca to see how you can help.

As a registered charity EDCCA works hard to support people in need and improve their quality of life in Easingwold and District.

We know that there are many people who because of their age or for health reasons rely on the services that we provide such as using the community car scheme to attend a medical appointment or being visited by a friendly volunteer through our Befriending Scheme.

We have much to be proud of and we thank you for your continued support.
