OnePlusOne Trustee Role Purpose
Duty of Care
Duty of Prudence
OnePlusOne has been delivering relationship support online since 2008. Over the years we have refined our approach, however it has always been our aim to help people early on in their relationship challenges, rather than pick up the pieces when the relationship has broken down. This has involved us working with digital partners to allow our content to reach wider audiences.
Whilst this approach has been good, we are now working on refining our understanding of behaviour change using digital as a way to achieve this. We have recently designed interventions to reduce conflict in new parents as well as addressing alcohol use in parents. We are about to develop a digital intervention for couples living with and affected by brain tumours.
We wish to improve our knowledge and impact data on behaviour change and apply our methodology in different contexts.
People do not seek help when they really need it or when it might make a difference, they seek it when the relationship is already broken. By this stage it could be difficult to move forward without costly intervention of counselling. We have the relationship know-how, based on relationship science, that can help people in these early stages of relationship distress. Relationship breakdown affects children, families, society and workplaces. We want to develop our digital portfolio to enable ourselves to reach people in different contexts and provide the information, support, and know-how that can help them change their behaviour and develop their relational capability.
