Care in Crosspool

Covid-19 Update: Currently operating remotely.

In 1986 Care in Crosspool started linking volunteers to those in need locally. We try to help anyone in the local community as far as we are able – the vast majority of our clients are 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. 

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. 

If you’d like to know more or can offer to help ring 0114 267 0045 – we have a 24 hour answer machine covering the office.
