Celebrating our staff

Staff with their awards

"What a difference you are making....150 years of care services - what an achievement that is."

Iona Colvin, Chief Social Work Adviser to the Scottish Government

Today, 30th May 2019, we celebrated the difference CrossReach continues to make to the lives of the people of Scotland through our staff.

Inspiring presentations from guest speakers, our staff, our management, our Convener and The Right Rev Colin Sinclair, Moderator, General Assembly of the Church of Scotland followed the delicious lunch, and peppered the programme that recognised staff achievements, leadership succession, long service and the special awards.

  • Iona Colvin commended what she described as an "impressive demonstration of commitment to training, learning and development."
  • Jennifer Emery (Author 'Leading for Organisational Change') enthused the audience to embrace change.
  • The Right Rev Colin Sinclair thanked the CrossReach family for making all the difference to put the bubbles back into the lives of the people we serve and support, before thanking everyone for all that is done in Jesus Name.
  • Bill Steele (Convener) spoke of the 460 year total represented by those recognised for their long service.

...a few of the key points brought to everyone in attendance.
