bccs team

bccs employs dedicated and qualified Social Workers and Counsellors all over Essex and East London to carry out our core counselling service. We also have an enthusiastic and committed team in our head office in Rayleigh who oversee the work of Social Workers and Counsellors, fundraise for bccs and look after our administration and finance.
