Job Description

Crossroads Care Staffordshire  is part of a national network of local charities employing


over 5,000 trained professionals and helping more than 40,000 people. Together they form


Britain’s leading provider of support for carers and those they care for.  We aim to help carers


improve their quality of life by offering a full range of services, including palliative care, night


sitting service and  individual and group activities for children and young  people living with


a disability.  Although we are a professional organisation, we are also a registered charity and


thus need the financial support of our local community by way of donations.


We are looking for an enthusiastic and dedicated volunteer of any age to join our Board, 


primarily as Vice-Chair as well as playing a full part as Trustee.  Although previous


experience of Trusteeship is not essential as a full induction will be given, an understanding of


the rôle of carers, the health services and social care would be very useful,  as would


experience in marketing, income generation, human resources or information technology.


Board meetings are held during normal office hours six times a year and last for two to three


hours with occasional participation in a further sub-group (finance, policy or quality). 


Trustees normally commit to serving a term of a minimum of three years which can be


renewed.   Travel expenses are also paid.


We REALLY, REALLY need you and think that you would find life with us very rewarding.


If you’d like to find out more, contact  Susan Brookes, Trustee, on


Please send your CV and a covering letter to

Mrs S M Brookes,  Crossroads Care Staffordshire, Clive Villa, 22 Cemetery Road, Shelton, Stoke-on-Trent  ST4 2DL
