It is with immense regret that as of the 11 June 2014 Crossroads Care Cardiff and the Vale of Glamorgan, and the associated Cardiff Carers Centre has closed.
The welfare and well-being of the carers they support has always been, and remains, their primary concern. The staff are working with the administrators, Cardiff Council, funders and other parties to ensure the closure creates as little disruption to the carers as possible.
Carers Trust Wales were only alerted to the seriousness of this situation in the last couple of weeks and since then we have all been working with trustees and staff to support them.
I would like to reaffirm it is Crossroads Care Cardiff and the Vale that have closed and not Crossroads Care in the Vale EMI, who are a dementia specialist scheme.
The names are similar and it can cause some confusion so therefore I would like to draw your attention to the statement on Vale (EMI) website.
It is also important to highlight that the closure in Cardiff in no way reflects the wider position of any other Carers Trust members in Wales (either Crossroads Care schemes or Carers Centres).
