What you can do Become an activist Become an activist Are you passionate about healthy, nurturing relationships? Are you one of the 80% of 16-25-year-olds who think their relationships and ambitions for life are at least as important as any work plans? We believe passionately that society needs to take this way, way more seriously. Do you agree? Will you take a stand? We also know relationships don’t happen by accident. If we don’t get help in our communities, whether we experience relationships that set us up for life; whether we learn the skills to develop or sustain our relationships, is a lottery. If Coronavirus tells us anything, surely it shows that at the end of the day, what matters, what helps us, what makes us happier... often comes down to relationships or the knowledge that we can depend on them. That’s where you come in. We work with people like you to help society think differently and value the relationships which can bring meaning to life; support us to get through what life throws at us, as well as the good times. We are asking you to start conversations in your peer groups, and inspire others in your networks online and offline... challenge them to have conversations about why relationships matter, why being able to depend on others matters and what it takes to achieve this. If you would like to see all families thrive and everyone benefits from relationships skills, inspire others, start conversations... we’d love to hear from you. Why not... Visit our Did you know page for some conversation starters? Use these facts to find out what your online network or local community think and ask them what small actions they could take. Follow organisations working to support relationships in your area and consider how you can support their work through social media activity, volunteering or fundraising. Create a blog post, vlog, cartoon, song or a poem about what healthy commitment means and why it matters. If it's inclusive and compassionate of others, please do tag us! Respond to media, MP statements and trending social media so that others consider how healthy, dependable and nurturing relationships influence/ are influenced by other issues. Talk with your youth group / school about how they support children and young people’s relationships education for life. Feel free to use our case studies and resources. Inspire your network by sharing what steps you are taking to care for elderly or vulnerable relatives who live locally or further afield. Ask your network what they’re doing and what ideas they have. Start a discussion at work or in your group about what thriving at work and in relationships beyond work look like and how employers and employees can help employee families and key relationships. We’d love to hear about the actions you take. Your work can inspire others to take action too!
