Cheltenham carers charity 'could fold within months'

A charity for carers in Gloucestershire has said its finances are so tight it could fold within months.

Cheltenham and District Carers and Families (CADCAF) supports families with disabled children, particularly where siblings are also involved.

Earlier this year it made its only paid staff member redundant to save money.

Director Lisa Raybould said the group was having to be run "term by term" which would continue if no major funding was received.

But she added events were being run, and money sought from such places as the National Lottery, to improve the charity's financial outlook and meet the £10,000-a-year required.

The charity was set up in 1990 to support carers and families of children with physical, mental or multiple handicaps.
