The scheme of Family Counselling Centres
(FCCs) was launched by Government of India in 1983 and is implemented by
the Centre for Social Welfare Board. Sampurna has been running the
Family Counselling Centre (FCC) since the year 2000. The FCCs were set
up for reuniting families and helping clients to resolve their disputes
through a process of dialogue and counselling. Sampurna has dealt with
cases of domestic violence, cases of abuse within the families, missing
children, absconding and many other such cases through this project. It
is through this project that Sampurna acquired an experience of facing
and managing cases of marital conflict, sibling rivalry, and
- Until now over 2,500 cases have been successfully handled in FCC since 2000.

- The assistance provided by FCC includes family
counselling, group counselling, financial assistance, legal counselling.
We are also working in close collaboration with local administration,
Police, Courts, Medical and Psychiatric institutions, vocational

Crime against women cell, protection officer, councilor, MLA, Child
welfare committee, DCPCR, NCPCR, DCW, NCW for providing the best
possible assistance to the client.
- In last past three years Sampurna has had 181 cases out of which 169 were resolved and 22 are still running.
of the total number of cases studies (181), it was found that 67
percent of the cases were resolved at the FCC level itself. Therefore,
the formal criminal justice functionaries were not approached in
majority of the cases.
- The study of the domestic violence cases
registered in Sampurna revealed that that 41 percent of women thought
that husbands are justified in slapping their wives if the latter showed
disrespect towards in-laws/ deny household chores/ looking after their
children. Our counsellors also found that the reasons of the women in
being in abusive relationship ranges from ‘feeling helpless’, ‘destiny’,
‘don’t know how to react’, ‘feels it alright’, ‘becomes a habit.’
- Sampurna also gives support services which includes skill development and training and outreach programs/awareness programs.
- Sampurna is working on a book on the impact and outcome of Family Counselling Centres expected to be released by year 2020.
