At ACS we provide an affordable service to our clients because our counsellors and staff work free of charge or at a reduced rate. Whilst our counselling sessions cost £45, some of the most needy clients are unable to pay this amount and we try not to turn away clients for financial reasons. The payments that clients make should meet most, if not all, of our running costs.
We receive no statutory funding. Our counsellors are trained professionals who in the most part give us their time freely. However, we have to meet other costs such as rent and administration. This means we need to raise significant donations every year.
During 2018 - 2019 ACS gratefully received donations from:
Alton Beer Festival
Alton Town Council
Alton Victorian Cricket Tournament
Binsted Parish Council
East Hants District Council (EHDC)
McCarthy & Stone
