How The Centre Operates

We have a board of trustees who meet at least quarterly.  They oversee the direction of the Trust and make any major decisions, such as which premises to use.

We have a part-time paid manager who oversees the day to day running of the Centre locations.  She is responsible for dealing with enquiries and allocating clients to counsellors as well as the normal administrative duties such as filing, banking etc.

We have volunteer counsellors.  See our Counsellors page.

We have volunteers who help with administration and fund raising.

We submit requests for funds to grant making trusts and receive some regular covenanted money from individuals as well as donations from local churches.

Money received from counselling goes towards paying our administrator, the rent  and day to day running costs.

Funding and Donations

If you would like to make a donation to The Olive Tree Centre please send a cheque to us.  Cheques should be made payable to The Olive Tree Centre.  If you are a tax payer please complete a Gift Aid form, available on request, and enclose it with your cheque.

If you would like to give us cash please do still complete the Gift Aid form if the donation is from a tax-paying individual.  Then contact our administrator who will be happy to arrange a time to receive your gift.
