Blatchington Court Trust
c. £50 per hour (Paid)
For over 25 years Blatchington Court Trust (BCT) has been delivering services for children/ young people with a vision impairment and their families throughout Sussex. We are an innovative organisation aiming to empower clients and their families to live their best lives. We give support and advice on education and well-being, as well as providing an active events calendar.
Having recently re-structured our Well-Being Service – which includes counselling, coaching, mentoring and 1:1 “buddying” – we are now looking for experienced self-employed contracted counsellors to join a pool of sessional counsellors (on a flexible as and when needed basis) living in East Sussex, Brighton & Hove and West Sussex. You will either have a vision impairment yourself, experience of vision impairment, or at least an interest and willingness to learn about vision impairment. Ideally we would like you to be able to offer face-to-face sessions. We will provide you with sighted guide training if required. We will pay up to £50 per session provided by you paid by monthly invoicing. We cannot guarantee how much work we will refer to you as the service is offered to our clients on an “as needed” basis.
