Crossroads is a registered charity which has been operating for 37 years in South Ayrshire (although also with a national footprint). We provide a highly needed service in offering a respite service for at home carers. The charity runs with a small office team supported by a team of Care Attendants and over seen by a Management Committee comprising of volunteers who each bring a different set of skills and expertise to aid the operation of the charity. We currently require volunteers with backgrounds in IT, HR, secretarial work and fund raising and marketing to help bolster the committee and to assist us going forward. We meet bi-monthly although there are other requirements for help at our various fund raising events.
