Here are some of the ways you can get involved with the 1point network

Become a Silverwellbeing Helpdesk team member

Do you have three or four hours free a week or a month? Are you are interested in helping people find out more about support in the community and beyond?  Would you like to meet new people, access free training and add developing a new service to your CV?  If the answer is yes to any of these questions we'd like to talk to you about becoming a member of the Silverwellbeing Helpdesk team.  For more information get in desk with our Helpdesk co-ordinator [email protected] .

Become a volunteer counsellor or psychotherapist

The 1point network believes that counselling should be easily accessible to all who wish to benefit from a talking therapy.  Based on this belief we encourage and support up to 160 practitioners per year to help us deliver professional psychological services to local people.  1point members offer places to trainee counsellors and psychotherapists who require practical experience to complete their qualifications.  We also welcome the contribution of trained practitioners who offer their time freely to not only gain more experience, but be part of a thriving network of therapeutic support for our whole community.  In return our voluntary team members are provided with out of pocket expenses, support towards clinical supervision, professional membership fees, and access to ongoing low-cost CPD training.

If you are interested in becoming a practitioner within the 1point network contact our member agencies directly for more information about their recruitment and selection procedures.

Become an independent board member with 1point or one of its member organisations

The 1point Board consists of representatives of our member organisations and independent members who act together to govern the central agency's key functions.  We are looking for additional trustees/directors to join us at this exciting stage of our development and would be particularly interested in talking to people who have experience in financial strategy, digital marketing and IT development and promotion across all sectors.  This is a voluntary role, but we provide out of pocket expenses and an opportunity to develop new contacts, skills and experience.  If you would like to discuss further please contact Elisabeth Long, our CEO at [email protected] for an informal meeting.

Apply for your organisation to join the 1point network

1point is a membership organisation and has been formed to increase accessible counselling and emotional wellbeing services to those people and communities who would benefit from them.  Our experience from the outset has been that we are stronger together and we continue to look for agencies who meet our professional criteria and help us provide further choice for clients.  Contact us to discuss further.
