Please be aware, Marriage Care is not able to support clients in an immediate crisis. The welfare of our service users is our priority so, if you are facing a specific issue, you may like to look at the below list of external services. Please also note, we currently work with adults over the age of 18. If you are a young person who needs help, please refer to the ‘Support for Young People’ section below.
If you feel you are in immediate danger, please call the Emergency Services by dialing 999.
