  • The Magdalene Project is an independent Christian counselling service covering East Lancashire, specialising in sexual trauma and abuse, working with all ages, gender, ethnicity, religion and social background, irrespective of their ability to pay. We work within the Codes of Ethics and Practice of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy and the Association of Christian Counsellors. A team of professionals ensure a safe, warm, and comforting environment where each person is welcomed without judgement and without time constraints. Due to being a small Charity, our resources limit us to how many people we can work with at any one time, and we are wholly reliant on external funding and donations from supporters and clients.
