Media centre

Relationships Scotland is the go-to organisation for journalists writing on any aspect of relationships, sex, divorce, separation, families and parenting after separation.

We provide relationship counselling, family mediation, child contact centres and other family support services across all of mainland and island Scotland. Our work supports individuals, couples and families experiencing relationship difficulties.

Our key messages:

  • Positive and healthy relationships are at the heart of a successful and vibrant Scotland.
  • Families and relationships bring meaning and purpose to people’s lives and they now come in all shapes and sizes.

  • Over 100,000 people across the country currently access information, family support, counselling and mediation from Relationships Scotland each year and many more could benefit from our services.
