Croydon Council provides services to people living in, businesses operating within, or people visiting the London Borough of Croydon. These services range from assistance to adults or families, housing help, city planning, cultural/sports activities or other types of beneficial services. The council itself is three bodies: the Executive, Scrutiny and Committees. Grants given out by the Croydon Council vary by type, but they still will coordinate with the types of services the council provides.
