On Thursday 21st June, CCC united nearly 40 HR and wellbeing professionals for a day of wellbeing to celebrate 40 years of the local charity providing quality counselling to local people.
Initially formed as a government funded organisation to train counsellors to a high standard, CCC later became a charity providing affordable counselling to those in the area who needed support but can't afford to pay market rates or wait for a GP referral. CCC's charitable activities are funded by providing counselling and associated services to local employers to support their staff's wellbeing, reduce absence levels, and support staff back to work after long periods of absence. CCC is still doing this with great success after 40 years and is still growing year by year, now with over 40 counsellors located right across Cambridgeshire and surrounding counties. The wellbeing day was intended to thank some of the long-standing corporate clients, as well as raise awareness about CCC and other local providers of wellbeing services.
Local construction and building maintenance firm and last year's winner of both the Business of the Year Award and Corporate Social Responsibility Award, Princebuild, sponsored the event at the ABAX Stadium, where they also gave a presentation on how workplace wellbeing makes commercial sense.
A number of other local wellbeing practitioners were on hand to give presentations, advice, and taster sessions as well as CCC giving an overview of their history and some of their services.
