Invest in Relationships

Relate and the BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy) have launched the Invest In Relationships campaign.

Together, we are calling on the government to increase funding for relationship support so that everyone who needs it has access, regardless of income. The investment will pay for itself through improvements to health and wellbeing and reduced pressure on public services.

Good quality relationships are vital for our mental health, physical health, wellbeing and children's chances in life. An estimated one-in-five adult couple relationships are distressed and without the right support, the consequences for families can be devastating.

Evidence suggests that couples on low incomes are likely to experience increased strains on their relationships because of financial pressures. However, their financial vulnerability also means they are less able to afford relationship support such as counselling, which strengthens relationships and in turn, improves wellbeing.
