For People with Learning Disabilities in the Borough of Croydon

 

This Guide has been put together to help you find out what is available in Croydon for people who experience learning disabilities, and their families.

It is intended as a ‘pointer’ to other sources of information rather than an in-depth resource in itself.

As with all guides, once they have been produced they soon become out of date as details change. So if you need to find out the most up-to-date information, please contact Croydon Mencap or Croydon Social Services.
