The Grove is a part of The Hope Trust (Bedford) a registered Christian charity. We receive referrals from health professionals, Social Services and other organisations who signpost to us, with clients also able to refer themselves for all services.
The Grove offers free and confidential services to all and we are committed to treating everyone equally and with respect regardless of religion, background, race, beliefs, age or gender.
We began in 1999 and are overseen by a capable and caring Steering Group, with a range of relevant experience. We work with a code of ethics and have a complaints procedure. All trained volunteers work under the supervision of a qualified counselling supervisor and undergo further training on a regular basis.
We receive no statutory financial support so we are extremely grateful to the many donations that come from individuals, churches and organisations who donate to us.
