Eden Care Project

We are a non-for-profit organisation. We aim to better the elderly care services and access to these services for BME groups. We believe and know that there exists an inequality in service provision for these groups; whether that be due to this group not understanding what is available, to not understanding who/where to seek help etc. Also we aim to (in the future) deliver care services that are designed and delivered with the cultural and social/health needs of the target population in mind; we aim to deliver responsive, adaptive care services ranging from home care/home help to day care and respite services, advocacy services, residential/nursing care provision etc.
