There are a series of official Charlton Athletic Supporters' Club (CASC) branches and independent fan groups with links to the Addicks
There are a number of Charlton Athletic Supporters' Club (CASC) branches and independent fan groups linked to the club.
CASC branches range through Kent and Sussex all the way to the West Country. There are also groups independent of CASC in three areas of Kent.
The aim of these varied groups of supporters is to bring together like-minded Addicks by means of locally held social functions such as quizzes, question-and-answer events with club personnel/players, race nights, and so on, while providing a link with the club.
The annual end-of-season player of the year event was organised by CASC until 2011, when the Fans' Forum was asked by the club to assume the organisation.
Some groups liaise with their members via regular newsletters and/or emails, while those further away from SE7 offer travel opportunities to matches and provide a ticket service for their members.
Most groups raise money for charity or for areas of the club, such as the youth academy set-up, and may sponsor a player's shirt, which in turn benefits the club.
Through supporter groups, fans have a means of relaying their views to the Club, while club personnel have the same means of communication with fans who may live in a specific area.
In addition, City Addicks and the Reminiscence Group, which is based at The Valley, hold regular meetings.
