ACC is a professional body set up in 1992 to facilitate quality counselling, psychotherapy, pastoral care and related training. It is passionate about maintaining and raising standards of excellence for these public services. Our leaflet Counselling and caring summarises these topics, click here to download.
It acts as a Christian voice for its members in relation to Government, educators and other organisations in related fields in the UK. ACC UK is also strongly linked to other ACCs throughout Europe and the USA.
Pastoral Care UK was launched as part of ACC in 2013 to further the aims of developing training and support for pastoral carers throughout the UK and beyond. PCUK has its own version of the statement of faith which can be accessed here . It has a clear mission and vision and you can find out more about that here: More about Pastoral Care UK
