Crossroads Fife

Crossroads Fife is an independent charity formed in January 2001 from the merger of other schemes in Fife which were around since 1980. However, the original idea to support individuals and their carers arose from ‘Crossroads’ (1972 TV soap) which portrayed Sandy Richardson’s paralysis after his accident and the dramatic impact on his family and carers.

Crossroads Befriending Service provides Volunteer Befrienders to support vulnerable adults, affected by illness or disability, who are isolated and lonely.

Our Volunteer Befrienders are carefully selected and trained to support people living in North East Fife, Central Fife and Levenmouth. Volunteer Befrienders offer opportunities for regular interaction with a phone call, home visit or support to a local activity. Having someone to talk and laugh with makes all the difference in keeping connected and continuing to enjoy life.

If you could benefit from a Volunteer Befriender’s support, please contact Marie Lindsey, Coordinator by phone 01592 630253 or email marie@crossroadsg.co.uk

If you would like to make a donation to Crossroads Fife please phone 01592 610540 or email info@crossroadsg.co.uk
