We are never too old to make new friends

Making new friends is sometimes hard when most of the day is spent looking after a loved one in the home. Crossroads can give you that all important time to yourself to do whats important to you. it doesn’t matter how you use the time, to make a new friend or for the every day things that help keep you having the energy to care.

National Pensioners Convention Campaine — We Need A National Social Care Service


Our social care system is broken. Since 2010 there have been over £5bn worth of cuts to funding and as a result over 1.2million people no longer get the care they need. Those who pay for their own care in a home often face higher bills than those who are sup-ported by their local authority. No wonder that every year, 30,000 people have to sell their homes to foot their bills. It’s clear we therefore need a new model for social care – one that shares the cost across society as a whole and improves access to services, as well as standards of care.  We need a National Social Care Service funded through general taxation and free at the point of delivery like the NHS.  To get quality care, staff must be properly trained and paid.  Services should be brought into the public sector. The NPC’s Dignity Code should be adopted by all local authorities, hospitals and care providers to help ensure proper standards of care.

You can help us to by:
Contacting your MP and asking them to support the introduction of a National Care Service for all.  Getting in touch with your local council, GP and hospital and ask them to support the NPC’s Dignity Code as a way of improving standards (the NPC can supply copies)

The National Pensioners Convention is Britain’s biggest campaigning organisation for older people, with over 1m members across the UK. The work we do benefits not only today’s pensioners, but the pensioners of tomorrow as well.

2017 Christmas Rotary Collection by the Crossroads elves!

Yet another excellent response from the community to Rotary’s Santa’s magic Sleigh Ride!

The night was dark, the wind blew cold but all around we brought joy and pleasure as the magic sleigh glided through the streets bringing Christmas cheer to young and old alike. Children gathered on street corners and people danced in the streets.

“We were waiting for you” one resident said and handed a bucket full of change to one of Santa’s little helpers.

Others stood on their door steps, waved and joined in the Christmas spirit as led by our Chair  Geraldine Orfeur and senior Rotarian’s from the Edmonton branch we played festive songs

joy really did shine around as pounds and pennies rattled in our collection boxes!
