It is with deepest regret that Age UK Notts announces the closure of the Counselling Service that it has provided for nearly 10 years. Since inception, over 500 people have been supported by the service. In addition, many of the Trained Counsellors have completed their supervised placements whilst volunteering with the service. The service has therefore made a positive contribution to thousands of people across Nottinghamshire.
Unfortunately the charity has been unable to secure external funding for this project and has had to take the difficult decision to close the service.
We take this opportunity to say a huge thank you to all the Volunteer Counsellors who have volunteered their time to deliver this service and also to our colleagues who have managed the service.
Due to the closure we are no longer able to take referrals for the Counselling Service or accept applications from Counsellors for placements.
We are currently in discussion with alternative providers of Counselling Services and will update this page once we have established what is on offer.
