To help support marriage and relationships in the context of the Covid-19 pandemic, Accord CLG, Accord Northern Ireland and Accord Dublin have established a new relationship support phone line which will be staffed by experienced couples and relationships counsellors.

Mary Johnston, a specialist in counselling (marriage and relationships), with Accord Catholic Marriage Care CLG, said, “Accord is very conscious of those experiencing difficulties in their relationships and family lives as we are confined to home during this unprecedented period for all in society. The circumstances in which we are living now can increase stress and pressure on relationships and in families. To help address these challenges, Accord has established a relationship support phone line to enable callers to speak to experienced couples and relationship counsellors in order to talk through the difficulties they are experiencing”.

The support line is open from 9.00am – 8.00pm Monday to Friday on the following numbers:

· Accord NI – 028 9568 0151 or 00353 1 531 3331
· Accord CLG – 01 531 3331
. Accord Dublin – 01 905 9555

This service is free but calls are charged at the local rate.
