Main aims and activities

Relate delivers counselling, therapy and education and has been providing children and young People’s counselling and other services to schools for over 20 years. Relate currently works in over 625 schools across England and Wales. At the heart of Relate’s work with children and young people is the one-to-one support to help with all kinds of issues, particularly ones that arise within the family setting. Relate also provides family counselling in many schools. Relationships with peers are also very important to children and young people and we provide help with conflict between peers as well as bullying.

Relate offers Teachers and support staff with training to spot students who may need additional emotional support.

Relate can deliver the PSHE curriculum with an emphasis on the importance of developing emotional and relationship skills and promoting resilience.

Quotes from teachers

Relate has greatly improved the outcomes for children and young people.

The service is very easy to access, reduces poor behaviour in most cases, reduces young people’s stress, and improves school performance.
