At Crossroads we need your help year round

Our volunteers are heroes who help to make a difference to the lives of carers

We truly appreciate the commitment every volunteer makes to help us realise our vision for every carer to be recognised, supported and offered services to help them maintain their own health and well-being.

Whether you give your precious time to work directly with the people we support, volunteer your skills, or fundraise. It doesn’t matter whether you give a little or a lot, what matters is you care.  On behalf of those we care for and their carers who deserve a break from caring, thank you for considering a volunteer role with us.

Because of you, carers can keep caring.

There’s a volunteer role to suit everyone, why not apply for one of our roles listed below.

Volunteer Roles

Care & Companionship Befriender

Carers we help need support with their loved ones at various stages of care giving. Can you help give someone with care needs time, by just being a companion and helping with simple care tasks for a few hours each week?

Carer Befriender

Could you support people who care for loved ones with companionship during respite? We’re looking for volunteers who understand how caring can impact people’s lives; someone who will take time out to listen, understand and be a friend for carers who simply need a break. Caring can be exhausting and socially isolating – could you give our Carers your time either in their own home or within the community?

Full training and a DBS check will be included depending on the role applied for

Community Ambassador / Fundraiser

Can you help us raise awareness of the role unpaid-carers do in our society today? People who care for loved ones often do so to the detriment of their own health & wellbeing. Can you help us by spreading the word about our work caring for carers? We’d like you to visit schools, community groups, including churches and supermarkets; attend local events to promote and fundraise for carers to ensure our charitable work can remain sustainable, helping more carers when they need it.
