Founded 30 years ago in the wake of the Zeebrugge Ferry Disaster, Dover Counselling Centre (DCC) has moved its headquarters to a new building. The official opening took place on Wednesday 14th June 2017 when the renowned star of film and television, Christopher Biggins, cut the ribbon to open the new centre at Horizon House, Gordon Road, Whitfield, Dover, Kent CT16 2ET. Such is the heavy demand for DCC’s services, that it was no longer possible to meet the needs of an increasing number of clients across the UK from its offices in St James, Street, Dover.
Welcoming the move, DCC Chairman, Dr Bill Moses MBE said: “We are delighted with Horizon House. Dedicated counselling rooms, full disabled access and sufficient office space to respond positively to calls from anywhere in the UK will allow our counselling centre to continue its sharp growth of the last few years.”
Centre Manager Angie Wiggins added: “As an established charity, we are duty-bound to operate as efficiently as we can. The splendid new facilities at Horizon House offer us every opportunity to provide best practice solutions to every client brought to our attention from anywhere in the country.”
