Bapca Local Groups
BAPCA Local Groups are a way to meet other individuals who are committed to person centred ideals. They are run by volunteers according to the diverse needs of their members.
Most groups welcome anyone regardless of whether or not they are a member of BAPCA or if they are a counsellor. BAPCA contribute to the start-up costs of local groups and are also keen to support and promote special interest groups. The most important consideration for any group is an interest and commitment to the person centred approach.
There are currently BAPCA Local Groups from Cumbria to Cornwall with new groups being launched every few months. Some groups run workshops while others are a means of keeping in touch with like-minded people. Click here to check your nearest group.
