For many people, life is difficult. Faced with various physical, emotional and social challenges, we aren't always equipped to cope on our own.

But at CrossReach we believe that with the right support, at the right time, every person can flourish and every life can be fulfilling.

If you want to learn more about the ways CrossReach can help you or someone you know, you've come to the right place.

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.
