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. Find out more about our ASK service here.
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 weekly social group for men with disabilities to access evening community activities.
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. Find out more about Crossroads Nursery here.
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 MANX WORKSHOP
Crossroads Manx Workshop
Crossroads Manx Workshop helps people with long term health conditions and disabilities realise their full potential whilst providing them with paid employment. The Workshop offers a valuable therapeutic service that strives to empower individuals through training and skills building. Find out more about the Workshop here.
Carer Advocacy and Listening Support
Our Carer Advocacy and Listening Support is a service for carers that offers independent support and advocacy. It is a free, independent and completely confidential service, and is available to all carers who are experiencing carer stress or changing circumstances, or those who need signposting to additional services and care packages.
Crossroads offers assistance with Disability Living Allowance and Attendance Allowance claims by providing help with form filling.
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.
