Who are we?

Respect For All Counselling is a long-established counselling service covering the whole of Greater Manchester, specifically for people with learning disabilities, autistic people, and their family members and carers.

Our counsellors will be running the helpline. Collectively, they have decades of experience in helping these clients.

When is help available?

The phone will be staffed 2 hours a day, with staggered opening times Mon-Sat. Please check here for the current hours.

The service is planned to run for at least 6 months, depending on demand and the current ongoing situation.

There is an answer phone available 24 hours a day. Please leave a message, and someone will call you back at a convenient time for you.

What help is available?

Our trained counsellors will listen and advise every caller.

We can provide a follow up service for a limited time, for those who need more help than one phone call can provide.

We will arrange to ring you back at a time that suits you.

We can also refer onwards to other organisations who might be able to offer practical help.

How can I help?

Please can you help spread the word?

We'd like to reach as many relevant people and organisations as possible!
Please share this page, or download our flyer and send it to anyone you think we could help.
