Thank you Okehampton United Charity

Relate in Okehampton would like to thank the Trustees of the Okehampton United Charity for their generous financial contribution in helping us to continue to run this local counselling service. The service, which is run from the Ockment Centre in Okehampton, is hoping to expand the hours offered to people later this year, giving couples and individuals a greater choice of times when a Relate counsellor will be available. The grant enables Relate to offer help to those who cannot afford the full cost of the counselling. It will help Okehampton people to access the service locally or in one of our other centres if preferred. There is currently no waiting list in OKEHAMPTON. This is the first time that such a grant has been made to us and we are thrilled!
