The Association for Agency-based Counselling in Ireland (AACPI) is an association of like-minded agencies who provide counselling services for people in communities across Ireland. AACPI member agencies uphold core-principles that define an agency-based approach to counselling. These core-principles shape and influence the counselling practice, administration, standards, and ethos of a centre or agency. We work together to develop standards of excellence for organisations providing counselling services with a wide and varied range of presenting issues to all in the community.

Since 2009, the old Family Support Agency has been funding & supporting the AACPI to develop standards and best practice within the community based counselling sector. It has been the principal statutory authority seeking to provide support for counselling in relation to marriage & couple counselling, bereavement & child counselling. Under the umbrella of the new agency ‘Tusla’, we are continuing to work closely and they continue to help us develop further in growing membership, producing evidence-based statistics and advocacy.
