Who we are

Relate Cheshire & Merseyside is a local charity that has been supporting healthy, happy relationships for more than 40 years. We now also operate across Greater Manchester as Relate Greater Manchester.

Relationships with family, partners, friends and colleagues play a big part in how happy we are. Whether you're facing difficulties, looking to strengthen your relationships, or want help thinking things through, we're here to support you.

We can help you if you’re single or in a relationship, straight or gay, young or old. Whatever your circumstances we’re dedicated to helping you get the most out of your relationships, no matter how big or small the issue.

We are governed by a Board of Trustees, all of them volunteers, who are committed to helping everyone have healthy and happy relationships.

What we do

We're here to help you make the most of your couple and family relationships, past, present or future. We can help you even if you're not currently in a relationship.

We are a source of support. Our services include relationship counselling for individuals and couples, sex therapy, family counselling, counselling for young people, and telephone counselling. We also deliver a range of specialist services for organisations involving training, counselling and group-work.
