Born out of the needs of local people, Lochaber Hope was formed in November 2005 recognising that there was no local service that was open to the whole community, regardless of any criteria or need.
Hope is a person centred organisation, we believe that everyone has the ability within themselves to reach their own potential; staff and volunteers work and learn closely together to make this an attractive choice; a safe, inspiring, positive environment to allow people to safely explore strengths and barriers.
We provide 4 main services:
Most people are aware of the term 'counselling', although many are unsure what it actually offers. Counselling is confidential and non judgemental, and involves talking to someone who is trained to listen to you and allows you time to deal with specific issues in your life.
Professional, experienced Counsellors are available to work with all ages and issues, daily including weekends and evenings. We also offer counselling for Couples, Children and Young People.
Lochaber Hope offers Mentor support to individuals, agencies and employers.
Maybe counselling seems too in-depth, but you could use someone to support you while you're struggling. Maybe you need help with finances, loneliness or looking for a job?
Our mentors are understanding, caring, patient and discreet; many have been through tough times themselves so understand what it's like to need a helping hand and friendly ear.
We support unemployed people to enter or re-enter the job market.
We provide employability skills and personal development training, placement and job trial opportunities for customers and support for employers to help manage costly recruitment needs.
