John and Nicki are pleased to confirm their Captains’ Charity for 2024-2025 is Crossroads Care , Surrey

Crossroads Care Surrey supports carers. A carer is someone who looks after a relative or friend with a significant health condition or disability, ranging from an older person with dementia to a child with Autism. We provide short respite breaks giving the carer some precious time to themselves.

The unpaid carers we support are often going unnoticed. Caring for someone else is a long, lonely, and hard thing to do and often done at the unpaid carers own expense. There is no holiday, no sick pay, no pay rise, and no strike option. Unpaid carers prevent early hospital admissions and do an unbelievable job not just for the person they are caring for but also by relieving further pressure on the NHS.

Without our support unpaid carers often suffer physical and mental health problems themselves as they care for loved ones 24 hours a day, and 7 days a week.

Crossroads Care Surrey exists to support unpaid carers and that includes young unpaid carers too. The support we offer comes mainly in the form of respite breaks but extends from companionship visits all the way through to end of life care.
