Asian Resource Centre of Croydon was established in 1999 as a charitable organisation with a view of bringing together Asian Communities & Businesses. Our mission is to support, develop and promote voluntary/community activity that enhances the quality of life in Croydon.
Our vision is of an inclusive vibrant and sustainable voluntary and community sector that enhances local quality of life.
Our key outcomes are:-
More effective, responsive services for local people
Empowered and active communities
Increased social inclusion and community cohesion
An increase in social capital
Strengthening of civil society
Increased health and wellbeing of Asian communities
ARCC believes in a holistic approach to delivering services and achieving impactful outcomes.
Our approach is three pronged:-
Partnering with organisations to deliver an ABCD grass roots response that builds on community strengths and advances equalities for addressing needs and issues faced by marginalised communities.
Enabling voluntary sector organisations to develop and grow, providing infrastructure support to VCS to deliver quality services.
Gathering evidence of community conversations in relation to community issues, needs and gaps affecting Asian communities in particular.
