Pauline Steele, Chief Executive Officer said,

“We are an independent local charity providing services to both adults and children. We are not changing what we do – we will still have the same quality Crossroads carer services delivered by our committed Crossroads staff. We are however, changing the way we look. This rebrand will define better who we are, and reinforce our existing national partnership with Carers Trust. We felt the time was right to change our branding, so carers can better identify us as a specialist local provider of carer services, working together across a network of regional and national partners. We look forward to developing new areas of activity and how this strengthened partnership will enable us to reach more carers in Gateshead and beyond.”

I would urge any carer who would like to access our services or who would like more information on what we can offer, to contact us on 01207 549 780. Carers Trust is Britain’s leading provider of information, advice and practical support to carer across the UK.
