Beacon counsellor Margaret shares why she continues to volunteer for Beacon.

“I have been volunteering for Beacon since 2002 because the organisation reaches out to the diverse needs of the people of Stockport and beyond. In the 16 years I have been at Beacon we have expanded our adult services to include working with new groups and outreach venues in a variety of locations. I work from an outreach venue one day a week and know how vital Beacon’s presence is to the community it serves there.

Beacon accepts clients regardless of their financial ability, which in these difficult financial times, is critical to helping those who need it the most. I have been told regularly by clients that they feel valued by our service. I value this organisation and what we achieve, and will continue to be part of the Beacon family team as long as I am able.”


Beacon provides continuing professional development training from evening talks to full day master classes. All CPD training is open to anyone with the goal of enhancing best practice in the local area. The courses are open to all, including anyone who would like to develop personally and professionally.
