Family Counselling Trust (FCT)

Family Counselling Trust (FCT) is a registered mental health charity providing key early intervention counselling support to children, young people (up to age 18) and their families. It was founded in Dorset in 2005 to respond to the growing challenges facing families and young people – emotional, behavioural or other mental health problems – where they were unable to access timely and adequate support. FCT raises funds to enable parents on stretched incomes to access help for their children, with the charity subsidising the cost of the therapy. FCT offers children and young people an early opportunity to be supported by a qualified psychological therapist, in what is an holistic service involving the families.
