Objectives

Offering counselling, information, and support to individuals, couples, young people and families, we provide services to people of all backgrounds and sexualities at all stages of life.

Relate is the leading relationships charity and the Relate Federation is the largest provider of relationship support in England and Wales. The Relate Federation comprises the national charity Relate – which delivers services in 15 Relate Areas – and 23 federated Relate Centres which are independent local charities, as well as other expert partners. Relate Dorset & South Wiltshire is one of the federated Relate Centres.

Relationships today often face new and unchartered challenges. When things go wrong, there can be far reaching impacts for both individuals and society. We know that 2.87 million people across the UK are living in relationships which would be described within clinical practice as ‘distressed’. Poor quality relationships have a detrimental impact on people’s physical and mental health with many struggling to access the support they need. Our relationship expertise helps prevent loneliness, depression, abuse, homelessness, debt and many other life shattering events that can arise when relationships are not good.
