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
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
Charity Boutique – 71 Long Street, Easingwold
Boccia and Kurling Group in Tholthorpe on Thursday afternoons

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.

Ask D.A.V.E – Dementia Awareness in the Villages and Easingwold
Last Friday in the Galtres Centre, EDCCA and Dementia Forward launched an initiative called DAVE. The aim of this initiative is to raise awareness of Dementia with the opportunity to sign up for free training provided by Dementia Forward who also offer support for those affected and advice for those concerned about memory problems.
A DAVE leaflet gives information about all aspects of treatment, care and support plus activities in Easingwold which are readily accessible to Dementia Sufferers. Anyone can sign up for the training and we hope that more businesses will sign their staff up so we can recognise them as DAVE friendly.
We have DAVE bookmarks too and a DAVE card which can be carried by those with Dementia in case they feel bewildered or lost at any time. The card gives information about who to call if they need help.
For more information about anything to do with DAVE, please call EDCCA.
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.
