24 Why did we look at this issue? Older people are under-represented in our services but numbers are increasing: Less than 1% of our 100,000 couple counselling clients were aged 70+ in 2011/ % of clients were aged in 2011/12, compared to 12.9% in 2009/10 But, are well-represented in our workforce: 74% of our counsellors are aged % are aged 65+

25 Older peoples relationships are changing Divorce rates are increasing in the over 50s Rise in number of people living alone Rise in unmarried cohabitation Increase in step families and step parents / children Relationships face many pressures in later life

26 Relationships in later life campaign

27 Relationship checker

28 Case studies from Relate Centres Relate Avon Relationships MOT for the over 50s A one off session to check your relationships around retirement age Free copy of the Guide with every session. Relate Birmingham Following the national campaign, Relate Birmingham attended retirement fairs in the West Midlands to promote Relates work with older people. Relate Bradford Caring and Sharing service is run by Relate in Bradford Available for carers and is free of charge Users report an improvement in their relationship with the person they care for.

29 Relationships matter in later life There are three pillars to a good old age: 1.Health 2.Financial security 3.Relationships Government is focused on health and finances; relationships remain largely ignored Relates work makes the case that relationships should be a central component of central and local government policy
