As the UK heads for the hearing on their equality bill next week, a counseling service based in London is being honored for their inclusive work with LGBT couples. Presented with the eQuality Award by LGBT charity PACE, the Tavistock Centre for Couple Relationships (TCCR) promotes the health and wellbeing of all LGBT individuals.
“We are delighted to have received this award and have been working closely with PACE to ensure that we offer quality therapy services tailored to the needs of all people, including LGBT people,” TCCR’s CEO Susanna Abse said at the event.
“PACE has provided us with a great deal of support and we are grateful for their suggestions and the thoughtful way in which they have worked with us.”
TCCR was noted for its devotion to the objectives of eQuality through its policies. In the past year, a large amount of referrals came directly from LGBT couples.
According to their website, TCCR is “a service for any couple experiencing difficulties in their relationship” and “aims to develop knowledge and understanding about the nature of adult partnerships and provide and develop services which support couples.”
Founded in 1948, TCCR is a registered charity as well as an operational unit of the Tavistock Institute of Medical Psychology.
In April, the organization also won the Silver Award at a ceremony by the House of Commons.
