A carer is someone of any age who provides unpaid support to family or friends whose health or wellbeing could suffer without this help. This could be caring for a relative, partner, child or friend who is ill, frail, disabled or has mental health or substance misuse problems. Crossroads Care is Britain's leading provider of support for carers and the people they care for.
We work with over 43, 000 individuals and their families, helping carers make a life of their own outside caring. We employ over 6, 000 trained professionals, providing flexible services to people of all ages and with a range of disabilities and health conditions. As a charity, we care for people not for profit.
Our carer support staff love their work. They understand what carers, and those they care for, need.
They know the simple things that really matter, they do the hard jobs with a smile and they take pleasure in fitting into family life.
