CIC launches Arabic counselling service

CIC has launched an employee assistance programme (EAP), specifically aimed at British-Arabs or those relocating to the UK for work.

Its Arabic Counselling Support Service will provide confidential therapeutic services and emotional support. Individuals can access a free helpline to speak with an Arabic-speaking counsellor.

Kate Nowlan, chief executive at CIC, said: “The service is available to individuals and their families through their employer, and has been developed in response to requests from organisations that acknowledge some of the unique issues that this community faces.”
