Our Work

Our policy, campaigns and research work helps support our mission to ensure that effective relationship support is accessible to all.

Policy & Campaigns

Our policy and campaigns work aims to ensure that relationships are at the heart of policy-making at a national and local level.

We want the importance of relationships to a range of policy areas - including adult mental health, children's mental health, public health and children's services - to be recognised at the highest levels.

Our research and evaluation work analyses the effectiveness of relationship-focused interventions.

With projects as disparate as reducing conflict between parents, improving communication between couples affected by dementia and helping couples with adopted children, our research aims to bring the value of couple-focused approaches and interventions to a wider audience.
