I have been involved with Crossroads for over 20 years, for 10 of those years I was Care Manager for West Lancashire Crossroads until I retired. I was then invited to join the Board of Trustees when West Lancashire Crossroads amalgamated and Crossroads Care North West was formed. I became the West Lancashire Trustee on the new board and have continued to serve ever since.
I have first hand experience of the needs of carers and those they care for as well as managing staff and the running of the Crossroads Office.
Knowing how Crossroads operates has helped me in the role of a Trustee to provide good governance and support for our clients and staff.
