On 29th September 2010 New Life Counselling launched our manifesto at our annual conference. This manifesto seeks to set out the potential impact of funding cuts on mental health services and the value for money that is provided by New Life Counselling and other community & voluntary organisations.
The launch attended by key stakeholders, clients and MLAs presented the 4 key themes within the manifesto which we will be seeking to lobby on. These are:
1. Increased access to psychological therapies
2. Implementation of the Bamford recommendations
3. Regulation of Counsellors
4. Addressing training needs in counselling.
