Relationship breakdown ruins lives, and families can be torn apart by the aftermath of a divorce or separation.

Relationship breakdown can lead to:

  • Mental and physical ill health
  • Debt
  • Loneliness
  • Unemployment and problems at work
  • Homelessness

We help to prevent relationship breakdown, and when things go wrong we are there to pick up the pieces. We do this through counselling, sex therapy, guidance and training workshops, face-to-face, over the phone and online.

By donating to Relate you could change someone's life - help us give the gift of a healthy relationship.

Donate online

We welcome any donation and whatever we receive, no matter how small, will be used to help make a difference to the lives of thousands of people.
