Our aims are
To provide relief of suffering and distress to those in the community who need counselling but are not able to afford the costs of counselling in the private sector. Hence Mandala aims to assist those most at need to access long-term professional help.
- To make the service available to the public, regardless of ethnicity, religion, sexuality or gender. The service is limited solely by need, and those individuals who are in a position to access private counselling services will be referred on, reserving Mandala’s services for those who have fewer options.
- To provide the highest quality counselling service Mandala ensures professional, regular supervision for all volunteer counsellors. Additionally it monitors and supports professional development and training.
- To recruit and train new members on a regular basis.
- To operate on a non-profit, charitable basis for the benefit of the community.
