We are incredibly proud of our heritage but equally ambitious for our future. It is of great importance that CCC retains its very special characteristics and the goodwill of its members. This is what will enable CCC to continue to thrive but it is vital we continue to change and adapt to ensure our services meet the needs of the growing number of people who could benefit from them.
This strategic plan sets out our plans for the next five years. We will ensure that we have the best internal systems, controls and procedures to allow CCC to operate as a fully compliant and more efficient organisation. We will recruit more counsellors and offer training opportunities to our members. We will strengthen our ties with other charities and the business community. We will also continue to raise awareness of mental wellbeing and the benefit of talking therapies so that more people can be signposted to the support and advice they need. These aims together will enable us to provide timely and accessible counselling services to those who could benefit from them.
CCC is a membership charity and our members have the skills and understanding of the possible long-term benefits of counselling to both the individual and their families and communities. Our strategy therefore has been shaped and informed by their views, experiences and opinions. We also talked to our staff and officers to hear about their experiences and what matters to them and the people they work with.
A world where all those who could benefit from counselling services have the opportunity to access them, at a time when they need them, whatever their financial means.
To advance the wellbeing of individuals wishing to access support through counselling services, to advance the development of counselling professionals and to advance the awareness of the general public about mental health and the benefits of talking therapies.
We provide a broad range of counselling services to those aged 16+ and a community for counsellors to provide their services and access support and training.
