New course for men helps to build positive relationships

Published: 08 October 2018

Men in Slough who may be struggling to find the right support for difficulties in their relationships at home are being offered the opportunity to take part in a free 12 week course, starting later this month to help them.

The course, called Positive Relationships, aims to help Slough men find healthier and safer solutions to relationship-based conflict.

If you are male, aged 18 years and over, in a heterosexual relationship and are worried about your behaviour towards your wife, partner and/or children, and want to make a change for the better, call Sue Arnold on 07464 647647 or Angharad Jones on 07779 585796.

Sue and Angharad will be able to give you more information about the Slough group which will be held in the evenings starting in October.

Angharad Jones from Thames Valley Police, said: “We recognise that there is not always support for men wanting to address their behaviour.

“We want to offer them the opportunity to do this in a safe, supportive and non-judgemental environment.”

Cllr Pavitar K Mann, cabinet member for consumer protection and regulation, said: “The Safer Slough Partnership believes there is a real need for support specifically for men who recognise that their behaviour towards the people they love is not healthy.

“The Positive Relationships course will give them a safe space to share their problems and hopefully find new strategies for coping with life at home.

“Please get in touch if you feel you and your family would benefit from this course.”
