|Aire Rivers Trust||
The Aire Rivers Trust has a unique role as a voluntary body set up to help improve the quality of the River Aire and its catchment, in order that all river and catchment users can enjoy a better experience of the river.
Our Vision for the River Aire
3 Key Aims
2 Reduced risk and consequences of flooding
3 Improved community appreciation of the river
We oversee the continuing regeneration of the river and its tributaries following our industrial past. The river has improved dramatically over the last 40 years and we aim to continue the journey back to a pristine watercourse that residents can be proud of.
We were set up in 2011 to carry out projects that improve the condition of the river for its wildlife and for people to enjoy.
We are involved in saving some of the country’s most endangered species and preventing pollution by working with local people, businesses and landowners close to the river. The catchment has been modified over many years and our work to return the River Aire to its natural state contributes to reducing flood risk.
Much of our work involves education and explaining to people how the River Aire effects our economy and well-being, and what steps we can do to protect our watercourses.
We rely entirely on grants, fund raising activities and donations to carry out our work.

|Aire Wharfe & Craven Counselling||
We offer both Counselling and Psychotherapy depending on your presentation and needs, however, all clients must be able to engage in therapy. Where an individual is considered to be severely mentally unwell or highly distressed, immediate therapy may not be possible. AWC Counselling can support and advise people on how to become ready for therapy. Confidentiality means that we do not share information with other agencies. The only exceptions to this are where specific laws are being broken e.g. involvement in terrorism, abuse of vulnerable individuals. The rules around confidentiality and contracting will be fully explained. Therapy sessions are not limited but clients are expected to define goals and work to achieve them. These goals are then reviewed every 6 weeks to ensure that progress is being made.
Counselling can help if:
you are feeling stuck and not sure what to do
Everyone has a clinical assessment of their therapeutic need to ensure they will benefit from counselling. Sometimes an agency, an employer or the NHS, directly fund the counselling for the client as well as the assessment cost. Most clients, however, pay for their own assessments.
During the assessment interview, the assessor will discuss counselling fees with the client where applicable. The affordability of the fees for both the assessment and the counselling sessions is fully discussed. The fee, unless paid by someone else, is set at a rate that is affordable for the client and linked to their annual income.
The decision to offer counselling is based on clinical need and not on ability to pay. If a person is not offered counselling, the Clinical Lead will explain why and offer support for them to find an alternative pathway. The cost for an assessment is £25.00
