The grant will help to provide CPD (Continuing Professional and Development) and training to our team of counsellors in 2019-2020.
Our annual programme of CPD and training ensures that clients continue to benefit from our counsellors’ up-to-date knowledge and insights into the challenges that the broad range of challenges and issues life throws at us have on our relationships as couples, families and individuals of all ages.
In addition our training programme ensures that our team have the latest information and contacts to be able to make the most appropriate interventions and referrals to other local organisations, including for people whose relationships are affected by drug and/or alcohol dependency, domestic violence, sexual abuse, abusive relationships and controlling behaviour.
Our commitment to quality CPD and training also helps Relate MTB in attracting high calibre qualified counsellors and new counsellors in training. (For more about becoming a Relate MTB counsellor please visit our Work for Relate page)
Centre Director Fiona Greenfield said: “We are very grateful to the Trustees of the Louis Baylis Charitable Trust for their continued support and for their recognition of the value Relate MTB brings to our community. Their understanding of local needs and the contributions that small, local charities like ours make is a real asset to local people.”
