Our Values and Missions
Our mission is to support carers and the loved ones they care for. And the staff that helps us with this are the most important part of this mission
As a charity we provide a series of benefits, including support in achieving nationally recognised qualifications, a paid induction and competitive rates of pay.
“Our mission is to support vulnerable people, their family, their caring friends networks and their local communities.”
“My job is to do the care planning, reviews and risk assessments but I also have three clients that were my original clients when I first started as a Support Worker 5 years ago. I just don’t want to let them go! Some people just want to talk to you and share their past. One of my clients prays for me each week to have good health and to go and see him every Tuesday. My service to him is priceless because he knows that every week I will be there. Seeing the difference you make just by spending time with someone is the reason you do this job.”

What Can You Expect From Us
We provide a network of support to all our staff. We focus on helping you achieve more through staff meetings, regular manager contact and mentors.
Alongside regular feedback we will also create a specific learning and development plan to help you grow.
And finally, our eight-day paid induction programme means you can build your knowledge and your confidence, so you can deliver the best support to those who need it most.
We care for people, not profit. So we believe that the best way to care for our clients is to provide the best possible work environment for our staff.
You can also listen to the Radio Dacorum interview where Vanessa and Jess from the team explain how working for Crossroads differs from working for your average care provider in terms of our relationships with our clients, the hours of work, the investment in your development and career progression opportunities.
