Traveller Counselling Service
The vision is to create a culturally appropriate Counselling service, where Travellers feel their cultural beliefs and values are respected.
A place where Travellers feel safe to come and talk about emotional difficulties they might be experiencing.
A service which is owned by the community while at the same time respecting each individual and their values and respecting their right to privacy.
A service where the community plays a central role both in the management of the service i.e. the board of management and in dialoguing and feedback from the community in shaping how the service should be delivered and in identifying what the emotional needs of the community are.
A service which acknowledges the Racism and exclusion which Travellers experience due to their Cultural Identity and the impact of this on Travellers daily lives.
A service which will be based on best practice principles.
