Co-co Family-Friendly Week at Laurieston Hall

Type of Event: 

This is a residential workshop for all CCI co-counsellors. 

The 2020 workshop at Laurieston Hall is a space to fill with workshops, coco sessions, support groups, walks, music, dancing, cabaret and bonfires. This is a long-running workshop in a beautiful setting.  Please join us.

The workshop can accommodate 64 people in total, including children. ALL places must be booked in advance. 

There are ample workshop spaces, both indoor and outdoor.

This is a child-friendly residential with limited places for children and young people aged 0-17. (Those aged 18 and over need to complete a fundamentals in order to attend the event.)  The teenagers will be invited to attend a ‘Good listening’ module as a first step into the co-counselling community. There is a ‘kids club’ provided during workshop hours, although some young children may need parental support. 

Update: 2 April 2020 - Coronavirus

We are still hoping that this workshop will go ahead.  Laurieston Hall have told us that they are reviewing the situation regularly and will continue to do so, taking into account government and local authority guidelines and the needs of their residents.  They will make a decision on the operation of summer workshops (this being one) by 18th June. If you are interested in attending, please register your interest by completing a booking form and paying a deposit, as if we have too few bookings the event may be deemed not to be viable anyway.
