Who we are

Originally formed as the Dorset Child and Family Trust (DCFCT) in July 2005 as a Company limited by guarantee, the DCFCT was granted charitable status in January 2006. It has now been renamed as the Family Counselling Trust to reflect the Trust's service being available in Dorset, Wiltshire and Somerset. It is managed by a Board of Directors, which is supported by an advisory committee. Included on the Board and advisory committee are medical advisors and family therapists, who serve also on the referral panel. Funds are raised through subscriptions from private individuals, special fund-raising events, donations from charitable trusts and support from other agencies.
