How does Crossroads Care work?
Like most charities, we face a constant struggle to maintain sufficient levels of funding. Our costs have risen more than usual in recent years, mainly due to increased regulation which means more paperwork and more staff training.
Some of our core costs are covered by grants from the health and local authorities, supplemented by other grants for which we regularly apply.
But grants are never guaranteed and most must be applied for each year. Whether we get them, and how much we get, varies depending on budgets and Government policy. There is never enough money to help everyone, and we have no choice but to make a charge for many of our services in order to balance our books. Our charges would be higher without the generosity of the community and local businesses
