We’ve been specialising in couple relationships for over 70 years!

We were established as a charity in 1946 to support families in the Catholic community whose relationships came under stress after the trauma and upheaval of World War II. Of course, life has changed significantly since then, as have we. However our President is still the Archbishop of Westminster, currently Cardinal Vincent Nichols.

Now we are a national charity, serving the whole community from over 50 centres across England and Wales, with a network of trained volunteers who are motivated by Marriage Care’s vision and values.

Every Marriage Care specialist undertakes a rigorous training programme and we operate to professional standards in all that we do. As an organisational member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy, we embrace high ethical standards.

Our backgrounds, like those of our clients, are diverse, but we all share a passion for enabling people to build and sustain strong, fulfilling, healthy relationships. We’d like everyone to experience the benefits that healthy couple relationships bring to individual lives, families and to society.

The legally registered name of our charity is Catholic Marriage Care Ltd but we operate as Marriage Care.
