Survey of counselling services for women

The purpose of this survey is to find out what counselling and listening services exist for women in the NE combined authority areas (Co. Durham, Gateshead, Northumberland, Newcastle, North Tyneside South Tyneside and Sunderland) and where the potential gaps are. The information collected will be used to inform discussions about the possible development of a partnership or consortia around the delivery, development and sustainability of women's listening and counselling services.
