Everyone deserves a break but not everyone gets one

For many unpaid local carers earning a regular income or taking a little time out is simply not an option. They often feel isolated with no one to turn to, which can have a negative impact on their mental and physical health.

Crossroads Care Surrey is a charity providing respite breaks for carers, but we desperately need your support to help more local people. Respite cover enables unpaid carers to take some time out, to meet friends or just get some everyday jobs done. Last year we provided respite care for over 2,000 unpaid carers in Surrey but there are thousands more who need our support.

Crossroads have given me back something I thought I’d lost, which is time for me. The charity have been pivotal in helping me keep a bit of my social life.

I love caring for my parents – however, in the last year Covid19, caring has taken its toll. My parents have needed increasingly more of my time, which has left me feeling exhausted and isolated.
