25th Anniversary Celebration
Crossroads (Harris) celebrated 25 years of service to  carers and cared for people in Harris on Tuesday  31st August 2012 in the Community Centre, Tarbert. Past and present family carers, care attendants and  committee members joined with representatives from  funding bodies, the Convener of Comhairle nan  Eilean Siar and Angus Brendan MacNeil, MP to  enjoy a delicious lunch prepared by ladies of the  Bays Cafe. The Scheme has assisted 261 different clients and  provided 69,201 hours over the 25 years as well as  providing payroll support to 29 Self-Directed Support  recipients. Catherine Morrison who has been Chairman of the  Scheme since its inception in 1985 said:   “This has been the result of a lot of hard work by the  office staff, the faithfullness of committee members -  many of whom have been with the Scheme since its  inception, and the skill and commitment of our care  attendants.” She also thanked the funders, Comhairle nan Eilean  Siar, NHS Western Isles, Alzheimers, Cardrona  Trust, Harris Disabled Group, Churches, local  organisations and the community in general who  have been very generous to the Scheme over the  years.
