Merger for Scottish counselling charities
Two Scottish relationship counselling charities have merged to present a unified front to clients and funding bodies.
The charity, which is funded mainly by statutory bodies, hopes the merger will help it secure funding.
“Independent charity funders say they prefer an autonomous local charity on the ground that it has the backing of a national brand,” said Gay Hickey, head of public affairs at Relationships Scotland.
The charity feels the merger will be less confusing to potential users.
“Realistically, many people might not know what services are available to them,” said Stuart Valentine, chief executive of Relationships Scotland. “Our role will be to support and develop an accessible network and provide families with vital help when things seem to be in crisis”.
