Our aim is to ease the lives of the more vulnerable people in our neighbourhood.

We assist people to live independently and aim to improve quality of life. We do this by putting volunteers in touch with those who ask for help. CHGN aims to give help to anyone in the Croham Hurst (South Croydon) area who requests it.

Croham Hurst Good Neighbours (CHGN) is a local registered charity (No.1052007). CHGN is one of approximately 30 member groups of the Croydon Neighbourhood Care Association.
