Welcome to another episode of Island Influencers! This week, I have the privilege of featuring Jackie Betteridge, the remarkable CEO of Crossroads, the largest Third Sector organisation on the Isle of Man. When Jackie took the helm at Crossroads, it was a small organisation, but under her leadership, the workforce has grown by an astounding 500%, and the number of volunteers has increased by 100%.
Crossroads is an organisation dedicated to caring for carers, working with families and individuals of all ages. They deliver an impressive 160,000 care hours per year, a testament to their commitment to supporting the community. The work undertaken by Crossroads is both complex and rewarding, addressing the diverse needs of those they serve.
Jackie’s passions extend beyond her professional role; her tight-knit family holds a special place in her heart.
Jackie Betteridge and I delve into the services provided by Crossroads in episode 91, sharing insights into their operations and future plans. From what she reveals, it’s evident that her dedication to helping the Isle of Man community is unwavering, and her purpose shines through in everything she does.
Join us as we learn from Jackie Betteridge’s incredible journey and gain a deeper understanding of Crossroads’ invaluable contributions to the Isle of Man community.
