CKU - Centre for Counselling and Therapy
The CKU began operating in 30th May 2009, in the crypt of the church, an operation that was facilitated by the Polish Chaplaincy in Dublin. The founding of the organisation was in direct response to the needs of Polish people in Ireland and their families who were struggling with the problem of addiction, and whose barrier in seeking help was lack of English.
Initially, the organisation began as a pilot project in the field of counselling, consultation and emergency assistance. However, due to the needs of a large number of clients, the service was transformed to be a centre that offered professional psychotherapeutic assistance in addiction treatmentIn 2010, the organization was registered as the Centre for Addiction Counselling- non-profit reg. no.485287, and in February 2012 the CKU received charity statute - CHY 19490.
CKU offers a range of therapeutic and counselling services to treat a variety of needs today.
The organisation has been a member of NCP since March 2012.
