TCCR awarded silver chartermark for work with LGBT couples

Published in Press Releases on May 14th 2013

The Tavistock Centre for Couple Relationships (TCCR) is delighted to announce that it has recently been awarded an eQuality chartermark by PACE (a leading Charity promoting Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender mental health and wellbeing).

TCCR received thiseQuality-event-Margaret Unwin and Damian McCann TCCR 4 award for demonstrating its commitment to inclusive practice in its work with Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) couples. The eQuality Award is a quality mark for mainstream relationship services that show they have high standards of service for LGBT clients.

On 25th April, TCCR was presented with a special Silver Award at a celebration event held at the House of Commons.

TCCR's CEO, Susanna Abse speaking at the event said, "We are delighted to have received this award and have been working closely with PACE to ensure that we offer quality therapy services tailored to the needs of all people, including LGBT people. PACE has provided us with a great deal of support and we are grateful for their suggestions and the thoughtful way in which they have worked with us."

Through the process of consultation offered by PACE, TCCR was able to develop robust policies that reflect its commitment to the eQuality agenda at all levels of the organisation. This is reflected in the dramatic increase in referrals from same-sex couples to the organisation over the past year.
