CHOICES cic operates by applying for funding from a number of sources. We are not NHS funded, although we do apply to CCG's where possible. We are constantly looking for funding sources so please let us know if you are aware of anything in the Tamworth or South Staffordshire area.
The funding, as appropriate, pays for our professional counsellors, rates, heat, lights and so on. The more we can secure, the shorter our waiting lists can be.
Recent funding includes:
Funding our work we call "The Right Choice" - awarded for five years to support Tamworth people who are experiencing difficulties with their mental health.
