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 Craft Therapy 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.
Watch this space for details of our next event!!!!
If you are a local company and would like to support us or if you have any event ideas we would love to hear from you. Please give us a call and we will put you in touch with our Fundraising Committee. Your support really is appreciated by all the Caraline Team and our clients and carers.
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.
