Community Care Worldwide (CCW), previously known as Widow Care Worldwide was set up in 2006  to address a range of social issues associated with widows, vulnerable and isolated people, especially the elderly. Operating in the London Borough of Newham, we deliver fun, engaging and mentally stimulating weekly activities that allows vulnerable people to learn new IT skills,  socialise and come out of their comfort zones.

We help young people in the community by promoting self-education through our ‘reading’ projects. We use early intervention to stop at risk young people from getting into trouble. We do this through what is known as ‘targeted projects’. We provide general advice to young people and refer them to appropriate services in relation to their specific issue. We undertake a range of social activities including sports and day trips to facilitate mental growth.

We have provided services  in East London and Delta Nigeria. We have reached more than 550 families, including grandparents caring for orphans. We have carried out several projects in the community, including growing and cooking clubs, projects to promote healthier lifestyles and social events. We have a range of projects to come.

CCW has also supported the Hospital Discharge system by helping to settle elderly people who have recently been discharged from hospital. Referrals are taken from social workers, district nurses, physiotherapists, friends and neighbours.

We are managed by an elected Board of  Trustees comprising of four members and the founder who all volunteer their time to run the charity. Our management team are passionate professionals and are responsible for policy, strategy and financial control. In their professional lives, our management team’s careers range from nursing, law and pastoral care. Most Trustees are involved in the day to day work of our charity.

We are part of the Communities of Health group.
