Stronger Relationships Trial Stronger Relationships is an Australian Government initiative which recognises that happy, healthy and strong relationships are vital for individual and family wellbeing, and help to strengthen communities, too. Investing in marriage and relationship education and counselling can strengthen relationships and help improve personal and family wellbeing. Stronger Relationships runs for 12 months from 1 July 2014 and is open to all couples over the age of 18 years in a committed relationship. The trial provides couples with $200 towards relationship education and counselling with an approved provider of their choice. Couples are able to enter the trial at any phase of their relationship. They don’t have to be newlyweds, they don’t have to intend to marry, they don’t have to have children, and they don’t have to be living together. To be eligible to participate, couples simply need to confirm they are in a committed relationship. You may wish to pass information about Stronger Relationships to your clients.
