Our Leadership Team
Christine Aspin – CEO
I have been a part of the Crossroads Together team for over 25 years. Working in many roles from Support Work, End of Life Care, Care Coordinator through to Management and now in my current position of CEO. I have gained valuable experiences and qualified to Level 5 Leadership & Management in Health & Social Care.
I am continually exploring new areas of business, being creative and innovative to develop services to meet the ever-changing demand of Health & Social Care. Along with managing teams through change and direction to achieve financial savings, benefits and positive outcomes.
In my spare time, I enjoy the outdoors, mainly running and walking and find it gives me time to relax, unwind and reflect. I actively promote exercise to my team that has a wide range of health benefits and helps maintain positive mental health.

I am passionate about the services we deliver and the difference they make to people’s lives.
I was a carer for my Mum for 3 years after my Dad passed away and this has given me a unique insight into the challenges that working carers face. Outside of work, I run a community group that uses board games to bring people together who would otherwise be socially isolated.

The role of the Senior Leadership Team is to provide strategic and operational leadership to the charity.
As a team we are responsible for the successful implementation of the strategic plan across all areas of the business; operations, finance, HR and business development. SLT attend the monthly board meetings and provide a summary report for each area to keep the board up to date and to support decision-making.
As a group we meet weekly to review and discuss operational and strategic issues and to make decisions about next steps. We also reflect on the week, review recent actions and discuss the overall performance of the charity.
This helps us understand the bigger picture across the organisation whilst also allowing us to respond to challenges in specific areas.
Our meetings also ensure we understand things from different perspectives and get the best solutions for the people that work for us and the people we support.
