The Listening Place

It’s exciting to hear of Acorn’s Listening Training being delivered across the UK. The Listening Place is one example of our Listening Training being delivered to individuals and communities in an effective way across Salisbury. The Listening Place continues to meet an important social need in helping to fill the void between casual listening and counselling or other interventional support. It does this by providing listening opportunities through planned sessions at SMC and at St Michael’s Community Centre, by home visits, and more recently, occasionally by telephone.
True listening provides an invaluable opportunity of extending God’s love to others and this is what they seek to do at The Listening Place.
Acorn trainers who work at The Listening Place have delivered the following Acorn courses:
- Called to Listen
- Staying-in-touch (Dementia support training)
- Active Listening
The Listening Place have seen 147 clients over the course of 222 sessions in the last year.
