Care in Crosspool

In 1986 Care in Crosspool started linking volunteers to those in need locally. We are a registered charity and are always looking for new volunteers. You have to be over 18, supply references and have a Disclosure and Barring check carried out. You will be given a photo identity card and we pay any travel expenses.

We try to help anyone in the local community as far as we are able – the vast majority of our clients being elderly. Our strength is in befriending – either with a regular visit to someone on their own or a sitter whilst a carer goes out, but we will try to help with other requests if possible.

If you’d like to know more or can offer to help ring 2670045 – we have a 24 hour answer machine if no-one is in the office.
