Our services began back in 1987. Following the production of the ATV television soap Crossroads, a storyline highlighted family carers struggling with their daily lives and caring responsibilities. The public response was overwhelming, which led to Local Authorities investing and helping to set up local Crossroads schemes.

Crossroads is an affiliated member of the Carers Trust and part of a network of locally based partners who support carers in their homes through the provision of replacement care, and in the community with information, advice, emotional support, hands on practical help and access to much needed breaks.
