SUPPORTING ‘MIXED’ COUPLES AND FAMILIES
Are you and your partner from different racial, ethnic or religious backgrounds?
The on-line resources which have been developed for ‘mixed’ couples are presented on thecoupleconnection.net, an on-line relationship support service.
These particular resources aim to:
- Normalise 'mixed' couple relationships; i.e. to say that 'mixed' relationships are like any other relationship.
- Raise awareness of some key issues that 'mixed' couples may face.
- Signpost to further more specific support where required
We are working on a research into practice project which translates research findings on ‘mixed’ couple relationships into useful on-line resources. This project joins family researchers (from University of Southampton, London South Bank University and University of Nottingham) and One Plus One, a voluntary agency concerned with couple and family relationship support.
We collaborated with three key voluntary organisations which offer support, information and advice for ‘mixed’ couples and their families: Intermix, Mix Together, People in Harmony.
You can help us in two ways:
