As with last month's Manchester attack and London atrocities, many of our members have been contacting us to offer their counselling services after this week's tower block fire in Kensington and Chelsea.

Our deepest sympathies and thoughts go out to all those who witnessed the fire (as residents or emergency services), were injured, or lost loved ones.

We're sure that many members would like to assist in any way possible after traumatic events such as this. Many of our members, we know, already volunteer their time to charities.

As you may have read before, in our Manchester and London statements, we have been trying to find the best route for those wishing to help.

We've spoken to a number of organisations involved in providing support, including Kensington and Chelsea Council, who have asked that we continue to signpost those interested in offering counselling and therapy services to Cruse Bereavement Care.

We're working with Cruse (a BACP organisational member) to put together further detailed guidance and advice to members who want to volunteer following traumatic events. This guidance will be available on our website.
