Crossroads runs a range of services to meet the needs of all carers. We support all ages, disabilities, illnesses and care needs.
Care at Home
Our carer support workers take over the care responsibilities creating immediate and sustained respite, allowing carers to have some time to themselves to go out or to grab some extra sleep.
A high quality day service for older people and adults with disabilities. Premium Project gives carers respite throughout the day safe in the knowledge the person they care for is happy and safe.
An independent living support service that provides carer support workers to give a little extra support.
A doorway for adults with disabilities to strive to achieve small measures of independence. We promote a sense of independence, giving immediate respite through day care whilst working on sustainable self management.
Crossroads Community Venture (CCV)
A scheme for adults with learning disabilities which provides employment training and supported placements.
A project that builds on transition work with a specific focus on independence and goal setting to help young people with learning difficulties make the most of their lives and engage with the community.
Our nursery is the only fully inclusive nursery on island. We can provide support to children with care needs and give parents and carers the opportunity to go back to work.
Our Nursery Outreach scheme provides trained support workers to integrate children with care needs into mainstream preschool services.
Crossroads’ Young Carers project runs fortnightly sessions for young carers aged between 5 and 18. We run activity trips on and off island to provide our young carers with regular breaks away from their caring responsibilities and give them the chance to make the most of their childhood.
Action packed activity sessions for children with complex care needs during the school holidays.
Crossroads works effectively with statutory services to fill gaps in provision fulfilling a specific need for a carer and the person they care for.
Disability Access Officer
Crossroads operates as a first port of call to statutory, private and other third sector organisations to give advice and training around disability access matters. The Access Office also provides a Tiered Award Scheme to help local businesses and services to be ready for the Equality Act, and to pave the way for equal access for everyone.
