Help someone else

We understand that supporting someone who has health needs, such as an addiction or mental health problems, can put families under huge strain.

Moving to CGL

Is your service transferring to CGL from another organisation? We know that the transition from an old service provider to a new one has the potential to be stressful for service users. We will always prioritise the quality of your care whether we’re taking on or withdrawing from your local service. Read more about moving to CGL.

Mental health

We all need to be aware of our mental health and take steps to look after our own wellbeing, whether that’s setting aside some time for mindfulness or having a coffee and a chat with a friend. Click here for some tips for taking care of your mental health.
