Crossroads Care Surrey’s CEO Announced as IOD London & South Director of the Year Awards Finalist 2018


Crossroads Care Surrey’s Chief Executive Officer, Christine Cleveland, has been shortlisted as a finalist for the Public/Third Sector Director of the Year for the 2018 IoD London & South Director of the Year Awards.  Christine has been the CEO of Crossroads for the last 5 years. Crossroads Care Surrey is a registered charity that provides respite breaks for unpaid Carers within the home and in the community. Their head office is based in Leatherhead, but they provide services across Surrey. Many Carers find themselves caring for family members for 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Crossroads Care Surrey offer them a well- deserved break by stepping into the shoes of the Carer taking over their caring role allowing them to spend time with other family members and enabling  them to take part in other meaningful activities of their choice.

 “I am delighted to have been nominated for this award. With the awards ceremony falling in Carers Week (Monday 11th June to Sunday 17th June 2018), it is very fitting to be raising awareness of the important role Carers play in our society. In Surrey alone there are over 115, 000 unpaid Carers.

Crossroads has been supporting Carers in Surrey for over 35 years and I am proud to lead this wonderful charity with a team of exceptional workers and volunteers who offer support to Surrey Carers.”
