Relationship support interventions evaluation

The results from an evaluation of the government’s relationship support interventions project.


Relationship support interventions evaluation


This evaluation measured changes of the participants involved in 3 relationship support interventions. There were several objectives of study:

  • how the different types of relationship support affected well-being, relationship quality and communication
  • increased awareness and likelihood of using relationship-strengthening behaviours
  • changes in attitudes to using relationship support in future
  • value for money of the different types of relationship support
  • how to inform more couples about relationship support opportunities and encourage their use

A second report that summarises the findings from a group of randomised trials can be found on the One Plus One website.
