The Trustees

For many carers in Carmarthenshire, Crossroads Sir Gâr have been their lifeline – enabling carers to have time to themselves, an opportunity to have a life of their own through quality replacement care allowing them to continue to care for their loved ones.

The trustees are the foundation of Crossroads, giving their time and expertise freely to lead the organisation.

Speaking at the Above and Beyond awards, in regard to the trustees, Jonathan Rees, Carers Development Officer at Carmarthenshire County Council said “over many years I’ve heard carers say ‘I don’t know what I’d do without Crossroads’.

It was unthinkable to overlook these volunteers for their commitment, enthusiasm and expertise in developing services for carers”.

Our Values

Trust

We understand that our services only respond to Carers’ needs when they trust us to care for the person they support.

Involvement

Care providers and the people they support drive Crossroads service design and development.

Quality

We ensure that our services are high quality, flexible, responsive and continually improving.

Availability and Accessibility 

We work to make our services available and accessible to as many carers and people they support as possible.

Dignity and Respect

We always treat Care providers and the people they support with dignity and respect.

Working For Change

We work proactively with government and policy makers at national and local level to influence legislation and practice.

Family Friendly

We recognise that our service impacts on families and friends – not just the Carer and the person they support – and so we design our services with that in mind.

Partnership Working

We actively explore opportunities for establishing joint projects and relationships with other organisations that will improve services for Carers and the people they support.

Learning

We learn from the good practice of others in order to improve our services for Carers and the people they support and we encourage others to learn from us.
