In 2016, Crossroads Care Hertfordshire South was integrated into Carers in Hertfordshire to strengthen the services and support for unpaid carers and the people they care for. Our Care Service provides Carers Breaks and Domiciliary Care in Hertsmere, Three Rivers and Watford. For some carers a great break is the best support as it enables them to have time to themselves and a life outside of their caring role.
We are pleased to be an accredited Living Wage Employer. This means that every member of staff in our organisation earns not just the minimum wage but the Living Wage.
The Living Wage is an hourly rate set independently and updated annually, based on the cost living in the UK. It is currently £8.45 per hour for outside London.
We believe that every member of staff deserves a Living Wage. You can find out more about the Living Wage by visiting www.livingwage.org.uk
