Getting Together

It’s great to be in a new relationship and you want it to be long-lasting and fulfilling. However, meaningful long-term relationships don’t just happen – they require you to:

  • listen to each other
  • learn to communicate well.

Lasting relationships are built on good communication which means:

  • dealing with differences of opinion
  • sharing values
  • sharing a vision for the future.

Relationship education and skills training will get your relationship off to a good start. Services are available to help individuals, couples and families develop positive relationships including:

  • help with positive parenting
  • communication and problem solving skills
  • relationship education in schools
  • pre-marriage courses
  • key transition courses, such as becoming a parent or a grandparent.
