What is IDCS?
The service was set up in 1985 at the request of the Bishops of the North West dioceses. It provides professional and confidential counselling for individuals, couples and colleagues; independent of the diocesan structures, but which has their support. Supervision of the counsellors' work is financed by grants from the Diocesan Bishops.
The counsellors give their time voluntarily, and most undertake their IDCS work from their own homes. Thus clients are asked to travel to sessions, but this is the only cost incurred during counselling.
