Introduction Inspired by the 2014 Commonwealth Games, the CrossReach baton travelled nearly 3,500 miles visiting our services across Scotland last year. It was passed from one service to the next as a reminder of CrossReach’s unity of purpose – serving people in Christ’s name. Many services used the baton’s visit as an opportunity to invite local people to come and find out about the amazing work CrossReach staff are doing in their communities. The Convener and Chief Executive raised funds for CrossReach in 2014

The Commonwealth is described as a family of nations. The Church of Scotland, through the work of CrossReach, is a family within many communities across Scotland, supporting people. Our baton was created by transforming wood which was previously a church pew – a reminder of the work CrossReach does every day, supporting people to transform their lives.

Our work would not be possible without the involvement of people who are supported by our services, the dedication of CrossReach staff, the leadership of the Social Care Council and the support of Church of Scotland members. We are grateful that all of these people have chosen to be part of our story. With their help, CrossReach will have the privilege of supporting Scottish communities into the future: passing on this work to new generations, as we passed on our baton.

Adult Care Services CrossReach’s work is about supporting people to take control, improve their quality of life and unlock their potential. We believe in support that is designed around each individual, and it is our privilege to work with people as they make strides towards independence and seek to shape our services as well as the communities they are part of. Central to our philosophy is an emphasis on recovery where appropriate. Working with local authorities, other partners and local people has led CrossReach to a better understanding of what services are needed within our communities. CrossReach’s Adult Care Services deliver sensitive, supportive and person centred services where people can expect to receive a professional service tailor-made to meet the outcomes that they want for their lives.

፛ After spending the day with us, Scotland’s Chief Social Work Adviser Alan Baird tweeted: “Excellent visit to Morven.

I enjoyed my stay at Dick Stewart Service because I utilised support from the staff. I got real satisfaction from making garden furniture for Dick Stewart at Glasgow Wood Recycling Project. It’s something I would recommend to anyone looking for structure and purpose in their lives. The staff at Dick Stewart helped me improve my life. There’s nothing wrong in accepting support, which in the past is something I never did. This time I did - it made all the difference. – Joe

፛ Belly dancing, circus skills and drumming are not workshops you would find at a typical conference – but then, the National Forum is not a typical conference. The annual event is planned by a committee of people supported by CrossReach’s Learning Disabilities services.

፛ In Dundee, our Axis Forward Project and Coldside Parish Church have collaborated to open the R & R Café, run by people in recovery from substance misuse. The café is a place to develop community, take part in training, learn new skills and gain work experience.

፛ Some people at our Learning Disability services told us they want to apply for jobs, but find interviews difficult. The Scottish Consortium for Learning Disability delivered a 2-day training course on presentation skills to help people gain confidence in getting across their knowledge, skills and experience during a job interview.

Children and Family Services CrossReach delivers a range of services to over 2,500 children, young people and their families every year in a variety of different settings. We believe that with the right support and encouragement children and families can build on their own resources and be enabled to thrive and succeed. Most of our support is delivered in the communities where the children live and is tailored to meet speciďŹ c needs where we know children and families are at their most vulnerable. We offer specialist perinatal depression services and generic counselling services, including family therapy, relationship counselling and school-based clinics. We are also able to support children and young people affected by parental substance use or parental imprisonment. Some of these services have been amongst the ďŹ rst of their kind and have shaped policy and practice on a national level. 09

Getting it Right for Every Child Getting It Right For Every Child (GIRFEC) is the Scottish Government strategy to make Scotland the best place to grow up. The strategy is now underpinned by statute within the Children & Young Peoples Bill 2014. As children and young people progress on their journey through life, some may have temporary difficulties, some may live with challenges and some may experience more complex issues. Sometimes they – and their families – are going to need help and support. No matter where they live or whatever their needs, children, young people and their families should always know where they can find help, what support might be available and whether that help is right for them. CrossReach is committed to working with the Scottish Government to help promote GIRFEC principles both within our own organisation and the wider Church.

፛CrossReach is one of only 2 organisations in the UK to have been accepted by the Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy Institute to start the process of Organisational Certification. This process is a means to a far more important end: we want to be better able to support the children and young people at our services to deal with traumatic experiences so they can start to see the world around them not as a place of chaos and danger, but as a place of opportunity and potential.

፛Some of our Daisy Chain families took part in a European-wide photography project designed to challenge the stereotypes surrounding the Roma community, working with a professional photographer to capture ordinary moments. The resulting exhibition was welcomed as a positive way to combat racism and promote good community relationships. ፛The official launch of the Edinburgh Befriending Consortium took place in the City Chambers in October. This is an exciting collaboration between CrossReach’s Sunflower Garden Project, Children 1st and Broomhouse Befriending Project.

፛Counselling Service Managers Jacqui Lindsay and Anne Goldie completed a research project with Abertay University capturing people’s experience of counselling. They found that many people saw their lives differently developing new coping skills and strategies. They were invited to present their findings at both the British and European Associations for Counselling & Psychotherapy conferences.

Services to Older People At CrossReach we recognise people’s uniqueness as individuals. This fundamental premise is at the heart of our work and shapes our approach. We have many years’ experience in providing care and support to older people - we have been involved in this work since 1928 – and continue to be passionate about developing new, creative and innovative services along with the people we support. Our staff work alongside and support each person to write a personal plan which enables each individual to live life the way they choose with the appropriate level of care and support. This support is delivered in a variety of ways including residential care, dementia care, day care, respite care, community based care and support and also through creative arts. We aim to enable people to realise their dreams and aspirations and attain the highest quality of life possible. 13

Playlist for Life During CrossReach Week broadcaster Sally Magnusson launched a partnership between CrossReach and her ‘Playlist for Life’ initiative which encourages people who have dementia and their families to create music playlists which are meaningful to them. She said: “It’s wonderful to discover that CrossReach and Playlist for Life are doing exactly the same thing which is celebrating the individual – the person inside somebody with dementia remains that person till the very end of their life – and can be brought back.”

፛Following a major refurbishment Bellfield Care Home in Banchory was given a completely new look with 34 en-suite bedrooms and a full decoration makeover! Everyone was impressed with the new surroundings as these comments from staff, residents and families reflect: “It’s finished to a high standard, the lift is much better and it’s easier to take mum out now she’s closer to us”; “It’s most enjoyable and makes me feel treasured. I’m very pleased to live here.”; “Tremendous! Just like a 5 star hotel.”

Cameron House

፛Cameron House in Inverness – which offers enhanced support for people who have dementia – has established an innovative partnership with their local Gaelic primary school, Bun Sgoil Gàidhlig Inbhir Nis. Pupils visit to chat with Gaelic-speaking residents, improving their language skills and breaking down barriers between generations. The success of the initiative was recognised at Scotland’s Dementia Awards, winning “Best Innovation in Continuing Care”. ፛A wonderful exhibition of work by participants in our ‘Heart for Art’ project was held in House for an Art Lover, Glasgow. The event showcased Heart for Art

the talents of over 40 artists from around Scotland who have dementia, demonstrating that dementia does not signal the end to anyone’s participation in their community, or to their opportunities to live a fulfilling life. ፛Gwen Anderson, Activities Co-ordinator at Queens Bay Lodge in Edinburgh, was named ‘Instructor of the Year’ by Oomph (Our Organisation Makes People Happy). Oomph’s inclusive and interactive exercise and dance classes have been introduced across our services by our Activity Coordinators.

05: CrossReach Week During CrossReach Week in November, the Moderator of the General Assembly Rt. Rev. John Chalmers visited a number of our services. Here are some of his reflections on his week with CrossReach: I see it as a real privilege to do this on behalf of the church, but it’s a double privilege to enter into and see at close quarters the kinds of things CrossReach’s services are providing. Service users themselves are regarded as people of full value (and are given full value) and the people who deliver that service are doing it with a real sense that this is a vocation – something that God has called them to do and you can see that in their eyes. I can see that the CrossReach services are geared up to provide a social care service, but not necessarily geared up to share its story. It’s delivering a professional service so that is what its priority is. So we need to find a way in which

alongside that we provide the greater opportunity for knowledge of its work to be shared across the church – and further afield. It’s faith in action – and it’s also a way to allow members of the church to be brought into the community of the church and to belong to it; I think it’s when you begin to feel you belong to the community of the church that your faith is activated – that you find faith, and through the work that lots of congregations are doing it’s a way of bringing people into the community. And you don’t need to preach to them in words to express the gospel – you let them see it in action.”

Social Care Sunday The first CrossReach and Social Care Sunday was held on Sunday 2nd November 2014. Congregations were encouraged to reflect on and celebrate the social care initiatives across Scotland which form part of the mission of the Church. We were grateful to the Moderator Rt. Rev. John Chalmers for his support in promoting this across the Church in advance of the day and for his involvement in a national service in St George’s Tron Church, Glasgow which also launched CrossReach Week. We set ourselves a challenge to try and reach as many people attending a Church of Scotland on that day. A leaflet was produced on the work of CrossReach and 115,810 copies were circulated. We are grateful to Ministers, our many congregational contacts and other volunteers who distributed the leaflets. Since this was the first such initiative we were encouraged by those people who completed a return slip offering to pray for our work, fundraise, volunteer, work for us or support us financially.

Getting Alongside CrossReach is about finding ways in which local churches, individuals and groups can ‘get alongside’ locally based CrossReach projects to support the mission of the Church.

06: Getting Alongside Crossreach ፛Since 2012, the Church of Scotland Guild has been supporting Heart for Art, a creative arts project for people who have dementia. By February 2015, the Guild had raised more than £132,000 for the work. Heart for Art currently runs 7 groups across Scotland with further expansion planned. This would not have been possible without the financial and prayerful support of the Guild. ፛In 2014, Dalgety Parish Church in Fife decided that their Harvest Appeal would be in aid of Perth Prison Visitors Support and Advice Centre.

A cheque for £3,220 was presented to the Centre just before Christmas – a great example of a church getting alongside CrossReach. ፛CrossReach and the Church and Society Council joined forces for a day conference in Motherwell: ‘Inside Out: Faith Driven Action’. Paul Morrison from the Joint Public Issues Team spoke about how changes to the benefits system had impacted negatively on the poorest in society. Delegates from churches across Scotland listened to panel discussions on ‘Social Care – A Government Dalgety Parish Church

Responsibility?’ and ‘Money, money, money: the way we use our wealth’. The Moderator of the General Assembly Rt. Rev. John Chalmers welcomed the collaboration between the two Councils. ፛We were pleased to be invited to the Church of Scotland’s National Youth Assembly. Members wanted to focus on our work supporting people who have family members involved in the criminal justice system, and they made a generous donation to our Perth Prison Visitors’ Support and Advice Centre.

You get what you put in, so thanks.” Without this service I wouldn’t be here. They give me a reason to get up on the days I attend.” The service provided has been crucial and greatly appreciated in helping me to cope and understand the challenges life has presented. I can only compliment and express my gratitude for the service my counsellor and your organisation have provided.”

Our People CrossReach is committed to learning and continuous improvement. This means that we support employees from induction through to gaining a professionally recognised qualification. Quality is one of our strategic goals and an important way to achieve this is to support employees to gain Scottish Vocational Qualifications through our own SVQ accredited centre. Further support is given through regular supervision augmented by an annual Personal Quality and Development process which not only gives feedback on job performance based on the previous year but also identifies and plans for any new training required. At our annual Staff Awards ceremony, 108 staff achieved new qualifications including SVQ levels 3 and 4, HNC, PDA and a BA in Education & Social Services. In addition, 16 staff were recognised for achieving 20 years’ service and 1 for 30 years’ service.

My name is Yvonne. I relocated from London to Edinburgh at the end of 2013. For 6 months I have been volunteering for CrossReach ConneXions, working with other volunteers from various backgrounds, helping ConneXions build foundations. Based on my experiences I was given the role of Digital Media Co-ordinator. This involved me travelling to various services and re-filming their website videos then edit them to be uploaded on their website. I feel that my time volunteering has helped me to build friendships, reach out to the community, learn new skills, and even advance my career. I feel that the benefits of volunteering can really help with progressing further in life and really help define one’s skills. It has been a pleasure to help such a wonderful cause, by showing people through my films just how valuable the work CrossReach is to the people of Scotland.”

፛Elaine Waugh, manager of Perth Prison Visitors’ Support and Advice Centre, was presented with Perth Rotary Club’s Cairncross Award for service within the community by President Mike Hope. Elaine and her small team work with prisoners and their families – 6,166 adults and 1,077 children last year – to increase self-esteem, reduce social isolation, motivate, encourage and maintain communication. Elaine has managed the Visitors’ Centre since 2007. The £250 cheque was used to buy food vouchers for those who use the Visitors’ Centre.

፛Allan is supported by Threshold Edinburgh, one of our Learning Disabilities services. Accompanied by Douglas Freeland (CrossReach’s Employee of the Year 2014), Allan visited Queen Margaret University to meet some of the students and share information about working for CrossReach. Patrick Lambdin, a Music Therapy student at QMU and part-time support worker at Threshold Edinburgh, arranged the event for his fellow Music and Art Therapy Students.

፛Gwen Anderson, Activities Co-ordinator at Queens Bay Lodge in Edinburgh, was the winner of the Meaningful Activity Award at the Scottish Care Awards in Glasgow. Janis Grubb, Manager at Bellfield care home in Banchory, was a finalist in the Management and Leadership category. CrossReach Chief Executive Peter Bailey said: “I am delighted at this recognition of the inspirational commitment Gwen and Janis give to their roles in supporting the residents in both of their services. To have a winner in one category and a finalist in another is a marvellous accolade for CrossReach.”
