Relate NI - Civil Service Employee Support

Relationship counselling is an effective form of relationship maintenance, particularly where there is ongoing relationship distress for a period of time. Current or former civil servants can apply to The Charity for Civil Servants for financial assistance for Relate NI counselling. The process will not be administered in any way by Relate NI

The financial assistance will be means tested and is not guaranteed. Therefore it is suggested that clients either wait for an outcome of their application to Charity for Civil Servants before starting counselling or self-fund in the interim.  

Clients can apply here: Get Charity Help | The Charity for Civil Servants ( The assistance will normally be for up to 6 sessions of counselling but clients can apply for assistance for more sessions with a written recommendation from a counsellor/centre.
