CSF-Languedoc was created in 2009 by a group of English-speakers based in the Hérault. CSF-Sud de France, which had been formed earlier the same year, provided valuable support and guidance to the small team setting up CSF-Languedoc.
The Association grew quickly, mainly as a result of an intensive awareness-raising programme targeted at the many expat organisations already active in the region. Since its establishment, CSF-Languedoc has been instrumental in a number of major CSF initiatives, including training support.
Our current membership stands at approximately 150, including 20-25 trained Active Listeners serving around 40 clients at any one time. Our volunteers provide linguistic, practical and emotional support to those living in the Hérault and Aveyron departments.
Regular events organised by CSF-Languedoc include our Drop-In days, which provide a safe haven for those affected by cancer. As well as arranging a variety of craft and game activities, Drop-In days offer attendees a range of pampering treatments such as reiki, reflexology, massage and manicures.
Another important event in our calendar is the annual Walk for Life fundraiser. This well-supported event has been running for the past six years, successfully creating awareness about CSF-Languedoc and raising funds to support CSF’s services both regionally and nationally.
