DACE is an organisation of disabled people established in 1999 to provide services and support for other disabled people who live and work in the area of north Cumbria stretching from Wigton through Carlisle and covering Eden district. It is a large area geographically and mainly rural, with all of the problems that are normally associated with rural areas, namely isolation, lack of access, especially where public transport is concerned, inadequate service and support infrastructure, absence of locally accessible advice and information, and, of course, poor awareness of the issues facing disabled people. It is these barriers to full inclusion in society which we work to combat.
MIND exists to promote mental health; to generate greater understanding of mental health problems; to improve voluntary and statutory mental health services and to address the concerns of service users, families, service providers and members of the public.
The purpose of the site is ultimately to provide the UK with a huge counselling support network, enabling those in distress to find a counsellor close to them and appropriate for their needs. This is a free, confidential service that will hopefully encourage those in distress to seek help. The website also contains a number of sections on emotional disorders (types of distress section) and provides some useful statistics. Every counsellor on the site who has submitted their profile has either sent a copy of their qualifications and insurance cover to us, or is registered with a professional body online with recognised codes of ethics and practice, this way we can be assured of their professionalism.
