The aim of Ribble Valley Crossroads Care is to give carers time for themselves.

In the last decade, the charity has also become widely respected for delivering high-quality personal care to any individual, whether they live by themselves or have a loved one caring for them, within the Ribble Valley.

The bespoke support offered by the charity is designed with the person who needs support at the charity’s centre.

This support can range from helping someone to get up, washed, dressed and make breakfast, to helping with medication, providing companionship, providing accompaniment on outings, overnight care, rehabilitation and lots more.

The charity is always looking for volunteers to maybe organise a one-off fundraising event, help out with small office tasks or to get involved as a trustee.
