TIC+ has a head office in Mitcheldean, Gloucestershire and additional offices in central Gloucester; Counselling spaces are located throughout the County and staff and volunteers are a mixture of office and home-based, working across the County. We strive to ensure young people, parents and families feel accepted, safe & valued, so that they can say what’s on their mind, and feel they are really listened to without the fear of being judged. We work with young people to help them build resilience and give them strategies to cope with situations they might be facing.
You’re not alone. We’re here for you.
At TIC+ we’re here to support children and young people aged 9-25 and their families living in Gloucestershire.
