Relationships Week 2022

Relationships Week 2022

Following the success of 2020 (#RelationshipsRocks) & 2021 (#LoveYourself), Relationships Week is back this year from September 5th-12th, 2022.

Relationships Week 2022 – ‘Milestones’

Engagement. Wedding. House. Kids.For generations, these are the milestones we have used to measure success in our intimate relationships. But times are changing. More and more people are delaying or choosing not to have children. Home-ownership has become unattainable for many of us. And a wedding is now just one of the many ways of showing your commitment. And what about the importance of relationships with our friends, families and colleagues?The traditional relationship milestones, while completely valid for those who want them, no longer suit everyone – so it’s time we started celebrating new ones too. That’s why this Relationships Week, as we celebrate our own milestone of turning 75 years old, with our upcoming policy conference on September 6th and the launch of our refreshed brand, we want to recognise the new milestones that matter to many of us. Whether it’s deciding to not to have children, finding our chosen family, recognising the anniversary of our oldest friendships or appreciating the support we give to our neighbours – we can relate.
