How will the Marriage Foundation make a difference?


The Marriage Foundation aims to create the climate and space for change by providing a focused, respected, and audible voice in public debate, alongside the promotion of relationship support and education. We will harness the passion and skills for the many individuals and organisations who believe that strengthening marriage will benefit society to ensure that our voice is heard.

Our regular, visible and respected presence in public debate – press, radio, tv and social media – will challenge many of the myths and false assumptions about marriage.

Improved signposting to a wide range of national and local relationships education and support providers will increase access to high quality services at an earlier stage.

We will publicise the latest research so that people are fully informed on all views of marriage, whilst our own rigorous research will inform debate on key aspects of marriage and couple relationships.

But ultimately we will make a difference by giving people the skills, knowledge and support to form stronger more stable relationships, and to help others in that task.
