Information for editors
1point is a collaboration between well-established and respected third sector organisations each having a proven track-record of success in supporting the local community. Our current members include: Beacon Bolton Counselling, Fortalice, MhIST, St.Georges Counselling and Simeon Centre Counselling.
Our members have over 100 years collective experience of delivering counselling or talking therapies across the region. By working in partnership as 1point we can accurately help to map local provision for mental health services, identify gaps and create new, innovative services to meet the changing needs of our communities.
This ‘joined-up’ approach means:
- We can offer a quality, standardised service across Bolton
- Waiting times for access to talking therapies are reduced
- We identify and prioritise those most in need
- We can be more responsive to local community needs
Working as a Community Benefit organisation ensures all investment is directed locally to continually improve the quality of services for its users and the local community.
