Our relationships have been hugely important in helping us get through the pandemic, but working from home, self-isolation, social distancing and other concerns have placed them under added pressure.
That’s why we’d like to tell you more about the support the Bank Workers Charity (BWC) can provide you, your partner and children, in partnership with Relate - the UK’s largest provider of relationship counselling.
Support for adults
Relate help thousands of adults every year with common problems including:
- Couple relationships and their effects on children
- Loneliness or loss, related to the end of relationships
- Affairs, trust issues, and physical or psychological issues with intimacy
- Family separation, stepfamily relationships or new families
Support for children and young people
There are also lots of reasons why a child or young person may benefit from Relate’s support:
- Bullying, harassment, self-harm or school pressures
- Worries and concerns at home
- Advice with their own relationships
- COVID-19 tensions including loneliness, isolation or anxiety
