Caring for carers across Cheshire West, Wirral & ShropshireMore about us
Crossroads Care came into existence as the result of a story line in the 1970's television series "Crossroads." In the programme one of the characters, a young man called Sandy, was paraplegic and required 24 hour care, the programme makers at Associated Television explored the problems faced by disabled people and in the course of that research the needs and problems of carers were highlighted.
The association takes its name from the famous TV series Crossroads. The problems of families caring for disabled people at home were highlighted by an accident to one of the characters. From this, the concept of a care scheme was developed and in 1974 the TV Company made a donation of £10,000 for a pilot scheme in Rugby. Crossroads has now grown to be a national organisation with approximately 140 local schemes throughout the country, all of which are registered charities.
