Change in client age criteria for Luton & Bedford clients:


Prior to making a referral please note the change in our client's minimum age.  Due to a recent change in our NHS funding we are now only commissioned to see new clients who are 18 years of age or older.  If you are aged 17 years or younger, please contact your GP for advice as it may be necessary for a referral to be made to your local Children and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMH).  Please do not hesitate to call us if you require any further information.

Additional Support Groups:


Our Art Therapy/'drop in' sessions take place each Monday morning from 11 am until 1 pm.  This is followed by a supervised lunch break and we then offer relaxation/auricular acupuncture between 2 pm - 3 pm.  Please call Elaine on 01582 457474 if you require any further information.  Please note these services are available to clients only. 

Please call 01582 457474 if you wish to book a place on any of our groups.

Please note that unfortunately we have no facilities for looking after young children if you are attending appointments or support groups.  Please therefore kindly let us know if you experience childcare issues and if you need to rearrange your appointment as soon as possible.  Thank you.

Fundraising Events:


We are delighted to say that following our recent MJ Tribute night in June, we have raised the total of £750 which is amazing!!!  Thank you all so much for your support at this event and a huge thank you to our Fundraising Committee for their continued hard work.

Established in February 1994, CARALINE provides a confidential counselling and support service for people with anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, compulsive over-eating and other eating disorders.

Our services are prioritised for the residents of Bedfordshire, however, requests for counselling and support from people with eating disorders and carers who live outside of the county are considered in accordance with individual need and the practical arrangements for effecting care.

Emphasis is placed upon engaging people with eating disorders within the early stages of their illness, with an overall aim of the service being to offer a comprehensive support package to sufferers, their families, and involved health-care professionals.

Where possible, people with eating disorders are supported within the community with the aim of minimizing the need for hospital admission, although support visits are made to those clients of CARALINE who are hospitalised.



 
 If you have any feedback on how we can make our new website better please do contact us. We would like to hear from you.
 
helping people with eating disorders make changes for a better life
To help us continue and develop the work we do with people living with Eating Disorders we are in need of donations.
 Please visit our membership page and consider being a member of Caraline. If 100 people donated £10 per month that would equal £1000
 This would allow us to offer 1:1 Counselling, a Telephone Helpline and a Carers Support Group.
