CaSA – Charlton Lane’s new carers support group


CaSA (Care and Support Always) is a new monthly support group for carers of patients of Charlton Lane Hospital in Cheltenham (whether current or recently discharged).

Next meeting:

Date: Monday 3 April 2023
Time: 3pm
Location: Charlton Lane Hospital (in the large conference room)

The group is managed by the Carer Champions from the wards at Charlton Lane. It offers a safe, relaxed space where carers and relatives can meet other people in similar situations to them, offload, have a chat and receive support and information. Often knowing you are not alone is the best therapy!

The Carer Champions will be inviting speakers and advisors to their monthly CaSA meetings, including local organisations such as Gloucestershire Carers Hub, Caring for Communities and People and advocacy services.

They look forward to meeting carers and relatives at their next CaSA meeting, which will take place in the large conference room at the back of Charlton Lane Hospital at 3pm on Monday 3 April 2023.

Clinical Psychologist Mike Gladstone will be in attendance explaining the support offered by the psychological therapies services within Charlton Lane Hospital.
