'Caring for Carers' is what we do!

Carer 1

This charity in South Ayrshire was started 25 years ago by the Soroptimists Club in Ayr. From a very small beginning we have gradually expanded and thanks to dedicated staff and volunteers we are now a major provider of support to Carers in South Ayrshire.

Carer 2

Although affiliated to Crossroads Caring Scotland we are an independently registered Scottish Charity and a Company Limited by Guarantee managed by a local voluntary Management Committee. Letters of appreciation are rewarding and a constant reminder that the efforts of all involved in providing the service are very worthwhile.
