Crossroads is proud to relay the kind support of MP's in our catchment area for the Barclays sponsored CROSSROADS COMMUNITY RELIEF PROJECT, which enables our charity to provide unpaid carers with some much-needed support during the Covid-19 pandemic. Under our scheme, Crossroads staff are ensuring that they stay in touch with carers who may need additional support. We can then provide welfare checks, shopping and prescription deliveries, and help with maintaining homes and gardens.
Wantage MP, David Johnston. said: "I am delighted to see Crossroads Care Oxfordshire have been given this award by Barclays. Unpaid carers play a vital role across my constituency and beyond and this grant will enable the great work of Crossroads Care to provide more people with essential support."

Indeed, I am aware of the tireless work carers undertake first hand from those delivering care packages."
Henley MP, John Howell, said: "I think we are all grateful to the army of unpaid carers who rise to the challenge of looking after others in times of need.
