Croydon’s very own eMarketPlace is coming and it offers the opportunity to ensure that local organisations, community groups and projects are visible and accessible by local residents in need of care and support and health and wellbeing services.
The eMarketPlace will go live on December 2019 and will offer members of the public, including those in receipt of direct payments and self-funders, the ability to search, choose and buy health, wellbeing and social care services in Croydon.
Croydon Council has been engaging with the whole market to raise awareness of the council’s eMarketplace, which will reflect a wide range of services and activities available to residents living in Croydon.
By joining before the 31st October 2019, you will be ensuring your organisation is listed when the site is launched in December 2019.
Registering is quick and easy, just the link: https://adultsupport.croydon.gov.uk/s4s/WhereILive/Council?pageId=5001
