Due to its success, Make a Difference is offering another week of workshops to support unemployed Croydon residents towards employment.
CROYDON TRADING STANDARDS
Register My Appliance Week is April 26-30 2021
Croydon Trading Standards are taking part in the campaign to promote the message
to consumers to register their appliances.
Go to www.registermyappliance.org.uk to register your appliance.
It is estimated that there are 100 million older appliances in the UK that helped sustain us through the lockdown.
AMDEA (The Association of Manufacturers of Domestic Appliances) members and
the Office of Product Safety, local fire and rescue services throughout the UK,
trading standards, social landlords and consumer groups will be using social media
to amplify the message and drive users to the portal’s registration pages.
- Be the first to know of any safety repairs or recalls
- Improve your after-sales service
- Keep in touch with upgrade news

Are you aware of the Maudsley Charity’s grants programme ‘Community and Connection’? It will provide funding for projects that meet the criteria and make a positive contribution to the lives of those who have experienced or who are currently experiencing mental illness. The organisations or community groups applying will need to need to work primarily in Southwark, Lambeth, Lewisham or Croydon.
This fund has particular focus on projects working with and for the benefit of people who are, or have been, severely unwell and who are likely to have experienced additional social or economic disadvantage.
They are particularly interested in hearing from projects that can demonstrate a meaningful commitment to diversity and inclusion, and which reach and empower people to play an active role in their own wellbeing and recovery.
Proposed projects should go over and above what might be provided through NHS funding. The average grant awarded is £20-30K and applications close on 12th May, 2021.
How to apply
Following the appalling living conditions suffered by residents in flats in Regina Road, South Norwood being exposed by an ITV report late March 2021

a rapid independent investigation was commissioned by Croydon Council, with a report promised within two weeks.
The report is available but has not been published, withholding the findings from the public and the residents directly affected, using purdah (pre-election period) as the reason for doing so.
The Regina Road Residents Support Group, representing affected residents in 57 flats, who feel ignored and refer to being left in limbo, has produced an open letter to the Council Leader which you can read below.
You are invited….
During the Islamic month of Ramadan, Muslims fast between dawn and dusk, breaking the fast just after sunset in a joyful meal.
