About Us

Crossroads Braintree & Chelmsford is a non-profit making voluntary organisation, offering physical and emotional support to the growing number of adults who provide unpaid care to people affected by disability, age, illness or mental ill health. We believe that with a little help and wherever possible people should be given the opportunity to continue to live in their own homes. We understand the importance of making sure that family carers are supported themselves. We can help carers achieve this by providing a break for a few hours each week, whilst we take care of the person they are caring for.

Crossroads Braintree and Chelmsford is a registered charity in England 1059393

Here at Crossroads Braintree & Chelmsford we provide a trained care support worker to look after your loved one while you have a little time for yourself. Many carers use the time to visit friends, shop or attend vital appointments to look after their own health. We operate an open referral policy where carers can refer themselves.

Our objectives are to help relieve the physical and emotional stress experienced by those who provide unpaid care to individuals affected by illness. We aim to help individuals avoid admission to hospital or residential care, by offering carers a break, giving them a little free time for themselves.

Crossroads Braintree and Chelmsford has been providing support to carers in Essex for over 40 years. We can also provide a sitting service that allows the carer some time to themselves to go shopping, attend appointments or just relax.

Much of our costs are funded by grants from the health and local authority together with donations and fundraising events.
