We are a registered charity (No: 1181861) that provides low cost counselling services to those in need, who would otherwise not be able to afford to access the support they need. We ask the client to contribute to their care according to what they can afford, and CCC subsidises the rest.
We fund this service by providing counselling and related services to organisations to support their staff and volunteers.
Some clients choose to make additional contributions later in their lives when they appreciate how valuable the service has been, if they are in a postition to contribute more.
CCC has been providing CPD and counselling services since 1978, is an organisational member of BACP and adheres to their standards and codes of ethics.
