Portsmouth Counselling Service is Closing Down
It is with deep regret that I have to announce the closure of The Portsmouth Counselling Service.
The service will close its doors to general counselling clients on 23 December 2016.
The current Substance Misuse Counselling Contract is coming to an end at the end of October 2016. A contract will continue with a different provider from 1 November and we are working with the new contract funders to establish possible options for clients who will still be in counselling with us at the end of October and who maybe able to transfer to the new contract.
The charity is dependent on funding from the Portsmouth NHS Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) and Portsmouth City Council. The CCG has supported the General Counselling programme for the last two years but they have decided that it will not offer any further funding after the end of the current grant. Without this support we are unable to continue.
We are currently working with our clients to support them during this very difficult period.
