Objectives

Our vision: is of a community where the role and contribution of family carers and people with care and support needs are recognised and they have access to a range of quality care and support services they need to live their own lives and maintain their health and wellbeing.

Our mission: to provide a range of services that recognise and respond to the individual needs of family carers, and people with care and support needs, offering them peace of mind and understanding; to improve their own health and well-being by giving them time to be themselves and take a break from caring.

Our Values:

  • Quality:  We ensure that our services are high quality, flexible, responsive and continually improving
  • Trust:  We understand that our services only respond to carers needs when they trust us to care for the person they support
  • Staff:  Continually investing in our staff training and development
  • Caring:  All family carers and people with care needs feel recognised, valued and supported. 
  • Individualised:  Services that are tailored to meet your individual need
  • Respectful:  Appreciating people’s differences, lifestyles and choices, and working with them to provide safe support that is meaningful and of use
  • Understanding:  Empathy as we walk alongside carers in their everyday lives
  • Partnership Working:  We actively seek collaboration and partnership with other organisations to explore joint projects and relationships.
  • Integrity:  We trust, respect and value each other.  

Activities

Crossroads Care Gloucestershire is a registered Charity that has been providing vital respite breaks to unpaid Carers and individuals with care needs in Gloucestershire for over 40 years. Our core purpose is to improve the quality of life of unpaid Carers and the people for whom they care by providing high quality care services that meet individual’s needs and support their health and well-being.

We do this by offering a range of care services to enable them to take a break from their caring responsibilities, with the peace of mind that comes from the knowledge that the person with care needs is in the trustworthy, reliable and professionally trained hands of our Care Support Workers.

Our services operate across Gloucestershire and districts of: Stroud, Tewkesbury, Cheltenham, Cotswold, Forest of Dean and Gloucester.

Services Include

  • Funded respite breaks for carers provided through our partnership with Gloucestershire Carers Hub.
  • Self funded support through our Care at Home service. Individualised, home-based support that helps people requiring care to remain as independent as possible.
  • Azalea Day clubs provide an opportunity for people to socialise with others, make friends and have fun in a safe and supported environment, while the family carer takes a break..
  • Caring Workplaces – support for carers who are juggling work with looking after a family member who has care needs.
