Relationship breakdown is crippling us all... as individuals, as families and as a society.
The stats reveal that roughly half of all couple-relationships don’t “go the distance” and recent research has shown this is costing UK tax payers a whopping £51bn per annum. In addition, research out of the CBI has shown that corporates are also footing a bill to the tune of £37bn per annum plus. With research also confirming that family breakdown is the single biggest trigger of teenage mental health problems, the need for a proactive approach to relationship capability development on a nationwide scale has never been greater.
In 2016, we established Soulmates Academy to help individuals and organisations achieve better wellbeing and emotional health through proactively equipping people with strong relationship skills as a natural part of personal and professional development. This has never been done before in the UK.
We have made some progress, however a mindset shift is required to overcome stigmas currently associated with seeking help for relationships and to have the sort of nationwide impact that is needed. Towards this end, below is an overview of some of our recent initiatives, over and above our regular work of delivering on-line courses, seminars and LIVE workshops:
Our work to date has been almost entirely self-funded apart from contributions from a handful of partners. However changing mindsets takes time... and money.
If what we have described so far resonates strongly with you, we would be immensely grateful for any financial help and support you can give. Please scroll down for our Bank Details. Of course, if you would like to have a conversation first, don't hesitate to contact us.
Thanks in advance for your partnership.

At this stage, Soulmates Academy is set up as a Limited Company and not as a charity.
If, as a donor, this is something you are particularly keen on, we would love to have a chat with you to explore options for establishing a charitable entity.
"Success in the city is so often accompanied in equal measure by stress in the city. It is a real, present and serious danger to stable family life and family relationships. Soulmates Academy’s work is vital and long overdue. They have to succeed, and we should support them."
