About Relate

About Relate Oxfordshire

Relate is the UK’s largest provider of relationship counselling and sex therapy. It delivers its services through a federation of local, independent, charities.

Relate Oxfordshire is a member of the Relate Federation and has provided counselling services in the county for nearly 60 years. Currently we offer our services in Oxford, Banbury, Abingdon, Bicester, Thame and Witney.

Our vision is a future in which healthy relationships form the heart of a thriving society.

Our mission is to develop and support healthy relationships by:

- helping couples, families and individuals to make relationships work better

- delivering inclusive, high-quality services that are relevant at every stage of life

- helping both the public and policymakers to improve their understanding of relationships and what makes them flourish.

Although it depends on financial contributions from clients to continue to provide its services as a charity, Relate Oxfordshire is totally committed to helping anyone in need, regardless of their ability to pay.

In launching its first Film Festival, Relate Oxfordshire aims to:

  • Harness the power of film to highlight current trends in human relationships
  • Communicate what it does, in a fun way to a wider audience
  • Raise much-needed funds so that it can go on supporting the increasing number of people who can’t afford to pay for help.
