Relate is a charity and the UK's largest provider of relationship support. They offer a variety of counselling services for individuals, couples and families, accessible over the phone, online as well as face-to-face via their centres.

Relate began as the Marriage Guidance Council in 1938, after a steep increase in divorce figures and the rising need for relationship support. A small office was opened in London in 1943, from which over 8,000 clients were seen in the first few years. It's estimated that Relate now sees over 150,000 clients a year, at more than 600 locations across the UK.

Relate helps people to make the most of their relationships, and provides support for anybody in need of help with a relationship issue. This includes colleagues, co-parents, married couples, best friends, and more. They believe every relationship is worth investing in.
