Caraline is committed to providing early intervention therapies to those living with an eating disorder and promoting understanding and insight into the issues faced by people living with eating disorders.
The National Lottery awarded Caraline the funding to purchase and refurbish our building in 1998 and whilst we are funded by the BLMK NHS Trust the funding we receive from the NHS is for our direct work with clients and does not support the day to day running of our activities.
Caraline is a not-for-profit charity and relies on donations from our service users and the general public. COVID-19 has had a tremendous strain on our service and we’ve made significant investments into:
- IT equipment/systems for remote working
- Additional staff to provide support for the increase in service users
- COVID safety measures
