Fund Raising

Counselling


If you have a certificate or diploma in counselling or family therapy, or are in the final year of your studies, and are looking to broaden your experience and skills, you may wish to know more about New Dawn Family Counselling and Support Service and the work you might be doing with us. To view the Policies and Procedures that govern the way we work, please ask for a copy.  We will forward a copy by means of e-mail to save postage.  Please email your request to us at newdawnfamilyss@btinternet.com


We endeavour to provide external clinical supervision for our counsellors, ensuring our high professional standards are maintained.


If you were selected your commitment to New Dawn Family Counselling and Support Service  would extend to working for an agreed time with our families after completing the course. That might be an option that you would find interesting.


As the number of counsellors increases so we can confidently take more referrals. It is a 'cart and horse' situation – the horse must come first!


But counselling is not more important than other activities in New Dawn FCSS. It is just one of the areas in which we need volunteers to help. Have a look at the list of things that need doing. We each have different skills that can help the charity to live and grow, and that helps the families we assist.

Our motto is

"From each according to their ability,
to each according to their needs!"

Administration & IT

No organisation can function without good administration to monitor and control key areas of their operation. Volunteer Workers in New Dawn FCSS need to travel to a variety of destinations and venues around the city of Leicester, and the counties of Leicestershire and Rutland. We need to reimburse the cost of travel and certain other expenses and there is a system for doing that.


We have a computer system that logs and analyses the extent of travelling and the cost. We require statistical data to reflect the operating cost. All this can be out-put from our computer system. But data has to be entered in the first place. You might like to work in the administration of our operation.

Publicity & PR


All the time we need to let people know that we are here and how we help the families who come to us. Please 'like' us on Facebook at New Dawn Family Counselling and Support Service.  Of course we keep confidentiality about the circumstances of individuals. 


Publicising New Dawn FCSS can take many forms. We need leaflets and posters to be designed, printed and distributed in strategic places


  •  Schools and Colleges
  • Nurseries
  • Given to health visitors and other professionals
  • Waiting rooms


And there is no better publicity than talking to people - 'word-of-mouth'.
Publicity will invite families to ask for help from New Dawn Family Counselling and Support Service. We can only give that help if we have the necessary resources and capacity. And that is why we need you! Whatever your skills we welcome you and your willingness to work to help families "...according to their needs. "
