Charity Info

Joey Dunlop Foundation:

William Joseph Dunlop, OBE, MBE., will long be remembered by bikers world wide and his many friends for his record breaking achievements on the famous Isle of Man TT Mountain circuit. However, many of those people may not be aware that family man Joey was a caring person who undertook a number of lone and dangerous missions to the former Eastern European Countries in a van loaded with gifts and provisions for young children who were being deprived of live's essentials.


Immediately after Joey's death David Cretney M.H.K. and Peter Kneale set up the Joey Dunlop Fund in the Isle of Man. Around the same time the Joey Dunlop Benevolent Fund was opened in Ballymoney by Sammy Graham, Joey's Mechanic, and Ballymoney Mayor, Councilor Bill Kennedy. Both Funds closed at the end of 2000.


A group of ardent Joey fans decided to approach his wife Linda, to seek her agreement to raise funds to construct a facility that would be of benefit to the community and also be a fitting memorial in recognition of the varied achievements of the person affectingly known as 'Yer Maun'. It was during the initial discussions with Linda and Honda's Bob McMillan that it was revealed that Joey would have liked to have constructed a facility to benefit people, especially children, with a disability.
Once this group of admirers had been given the green light by the Dunlop family, fund raising plans were instigated and the Joey Dunlop Foundation, (formerly known as the Joey Dunlop Injured Riders Fund) was established, initially to raise funds to install a lift in the TT grandstand to make access possible to the main viewing gallery for the disabled. The second undertaking was to provide much needed accommodation for the physically challenged and their families on the Isle of Man.

Crossroads:

Crossroads Care was first established on the Isle of Man in 1988 and as we approach our 25th birthday the organisation has grown and expanded its services to meet the needs of our local carers. The organisation become a network members of the Princess Royal Trust for Carers in 2004 and opened the island’s only Carers’ Centre in Derby Square.

As a charity the organisation relies on donations and fundraising to provide over 70% of its projects with the rest being grant funded.

Crossroads Care is the leading provider of practical and emotional support for carers living on the Isle of Man. Our service is about giving time, improving the lives of carers by giving them time to be themselves and have a break from caring.

We will strive to:

  • improve social well-being of carers and their families
  • deliver an increasing number of care hours to local carers, their families and the people they care for each year
  • increase total scheme income by diversifying the funding mix
  • provide the highest quality service for carers and their families
  • raise the profile of Crossroads Care and the needs of local carers and people with care needs
  • work in partnership with local and national organisations in implementing and developing new and innovative services which support the carers on the Isle of Man
  • develop appropriate services accessible to the whole community and be committed to responding to the diversity of needs presented and developing appropriate quality services
  • ensure our services are accessed by and meet the need of hard to reach carers.

Crossroads is the only on island service provide whose main focus is on the carer and as an organisation we provide care to all carers and individuals with care needs, no matter what their disability or illness, or age.
