Relate North Kent provide relationship counselling for the residents of the Bexley, Dartford, Gravesend, Medway and Swale Council areas. As part of the redevelopment of Medway, the Charity has been asked to vacate the premises kindly provided by the local authority for a number of years.
The Medway Centre is the administrative base for the Charity and each year appointments are arranged for many hundreds of people seeking help and support through difficult times in their relationships. In addition we provide counselling and support to children and young people that may be profoundly affected by the breakdown in adult relationships in the home.
At a time when there is greater stress on couples and the family with anxiety over the prevailing economic climate, fear of redundancy, negative equity concerns etc. now might be the wrong time to disrupt the delivery of a support service that exists to help address those concerns.
This petition aims to secure support from those within Medway and the surrounding areas in encouraging Medway Council to see the benefit to the community of sustaining the support to the Charity. In addition, to secure a building to allow the continued and uninterupted delivery of the services across North Kent.
We, the undersigned, call on Medway Council to take urgent steps to secure the continued and uninterupted availabilty of Relate North Kent's services in Medway.
