We have trained, experienced, professional counsellors ready to help anyone who needs their support. This service is open to the entire community. It doesn’t matter who you are, your age, gender, race, religion, or sexuality, we are here to listen and help.
We take referrals from the NHS, Social Services, Probation, but our counselling is open to all so we’re happy to take self-referrals too.
To access the Maundy Relief Counselling Service:
- Call us on 01254 233467
- Email firstname.lastname@example.org
- Or call in and see us at 21 Abbey Street, Accrington, BB5 1EN
We are open Monday to Friday 9.30am to 4.00pm.
We will take your contact details so that we can get in touch with you to arrange an initial assessment. Assessments take approximately half an hour and are usually available within a week.
Our counsellors give their time freely as volunteers but the service costs money to run. You will be asked to make a contribution towards this cost at your assessment but inability to pay is not a barrier to the service.
The main purpose of Maundy Relief is to provide an inclusive service to the entire community. That means if you need one of our services but can’t come to us, we will come to you.
Our trained advisers can provide confidential advice on many issues including:
- Benefit applications and sanctions
- Employment issues and rights at work
Our advisors are trained to offer support throughout the time you need help and after.
You may be able to find the help you need from the Citizen’s Advice public site, which contains self-help tools and advice pages on many enquiry area’s.
Maundy Relief Key Scheme aims to provide those in need with a suitable home from a reputable landlord.
We can also help with the paperwork needed to get people started with a tenancy. Once you’ve moved in, we will continue to provide the support necessary to make the tenancy a success and you will have access to all the other services provided by Maundy Relief.
