A message from Brenda Bond, CEO Crossroads Care East Anglia:
Following the announcement of our sad decision to close Crossroads Care East Anglia at the end of September, our management team has worked diligently to ensure, wherever possible, that service provision continues uninterrupted across Norfolk, Suffolk and Uttlesford. We are delighted to say that nearly all our staff transferred their employment to new providers, ensuring continuity and quality of service for as many clients as possible.
Carers Trust Cambridgeshire have taken over responsibility for the delivery of carer services based in Attleborough, Dereham, Downham Market, Great Yarmouth and Horsford. They will be known in the county as Carers Trust Norfolk, Crossroads Carer Service.
