What Your Support Can Do

Relationship breakdown ruins lives and families can be torn apart by the aftermath of a divorce or separation.

We do not receive central or local Government financial support. So, Relate Northumberland and Tyneside has to charge for the services we provide. As a charity, we keep these to the minimum necessary and we raise funds to enable people in difficult financial circumstances to use our services.

Relationship breakdown can lead to:

  • Mental and physical ill health
  • Debt
  • Loneliness
  • Unemployment and problems at work
  • Homelessness

There are many ways in which you can help Relate continue to support people with their relationships:
