Angela Foll, Relate Bedforshire and Luton’s Chief Executive, used the time to tell Mr Cameron about the range of relationship support services the charity delivers for almost 3,000 local people each year. Those services include counselling for couples, families, children and young people, as well as sex therapy and training.

Together with Ruth Sutherland, Chief Executive of the national charity Relate, Angela painted a picture of the importance of relationship support services and some of the barriers to accessing them.

“We explained to the Prime Minister that Relate Bedfordshire and Luton helps thousands of people each year to build stronger relationships. We see many people in times of crisis but we can also help people before problems really take hold. It was great to have a chance to tell Mr Cameron about our work – only by raising awareness of the difference relationship support can make will we be able to help even more people.”

She continued: “We all discussed how the Government could help to support Relate’s work further both nationally and locally as the election approaches. We want relationships to be at the heart of public policy and we look forward to seeing all the partys’ manifestos.”
