Marriage Care is a faith-based national charity providing nearly 6,500 relationship counselling sessions each year from 100 locations in England, Wales and Gibraltar. All our centres and services are run by volunteers and this means that we can provide counselling sessions on a donation basis, ensuring that everyone can access the support they need. Our volunteer counsellors benefit from ongoing CPD, supervision as well as local/regional support groups, travel expenses and insurance and the knowledge that you are supporting couples in their toughest times.

- Have experience of healthy close personal relationships during their lives,
- Are able to commit to long term volunteering.
