Welcome to Relate Mid Thames & Buckinghamshire
Our vision is a future in which healthy relationships are actively promoted as the heart of a thriving society.
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.
We need to guarantee our future by setting a clear ambition, and working together to deliver against that ambition. These are the values we work towards on a daily basis.
For the beauty, joy and learning they can bring to all. We value the personal courage needed to forge and sustain lasting relationships. We value the quality of relationships and we are non judgemental – supporting people to build healthy relationships, whatever the circumstances.
People are at the heart of everything we do. We create and deliver services around clients and potential clients’ needs. We value our people (volunteers, staff and supporters).
We work to reach out, and to extend our services and transcend barriers that people may face. We do this to ensure that people who might need or want our services can access them. We actively promote equal opportunities and diversity in all that we do.
Together we are stronger, more effective and can make a bigger difference. We seek to influence and collaborate with others to achieve our vision.
We seek to reflect, review, research and evaluate practice to continuously learn and improve understanding about relationship support.
