At CrossReach we offer loving care to people of all ages who are in need of a helping hand, supporting them to live life to the full whatever their circumstances.
We have been at the forefront of high quality social care for almost 150 years. During that time we have worked hard to understand the needs of the people who turn to us for help and with them have been at the forefront of pioneering services which have literally changed thousands of lives for the better.
Today we are one of the largest care providers in Scotland, with experience across a broad range of services. We are still growing, learning and improving, thanks to the incredible people we have the privilege to support, and all those who support us.
Our Christian Ethos
We are guided and motivated by a Christian ethos of love, compassion and care for all. But you don’t have to be churchgoer, a member of the Church of Scotland, or even a person of faith to use our services, work for us, or support our life-changing work.
The Church of Scotland’s Social Care Council
The Church's Social Care Council is accountable for the work of CrossReach. Its remit is to provide social care services and specialist resources in Christ’s name to further the caring work of the Church to people in challenging circumstances. It also helps to identify areas of need and guides the Church in new approaches to relevant problems in society as well as responding on issues arising in the Council's areas of concern.
The Convener of the Social Care Council is currently Mr Bill Steele who is assisted by two Vice Conveners, Mrs Irene McGugan, and Rev Thom Riddell.
