Relate's Mission Statement

Relate’s role is to help people build better couple relationships

  • To enhance the quality of couple and parental family relationships.
  • To help relationships, marriages and civil partnerships withstand the pressures leading to breakdown.
  • To limit the damage which commonly accompanies failing relationships, separation and divorce and increase the prospect of subsequent relationships succeeding.

Relate aims to deliver its services with cultural sensitivity and without discrimination.

Relate believes that

  • An individual’s physical well-being and emotional and mental health benefit from a committed relationship.
  • Children thrive in families where relationships are positive and free from destructive conflict.
  • People gain from an understanding of their sexuality.

Expressing clear commitment is a helpful contribution to healthy and secure couple relationships.

Equal Opportunities

We operate fully within an equal opportunities policy and promote anti-discriminatory practice.

We see any family or individual or couple who would like to improve a relationship or who would like to part amicably or to maintain a functioning relationship as parents even if they are no longer partners.

Our definition of 'family' is a group of related, married, co-habiting or other people who call themselves such.
