To help support marriage and relationships in the context of the Covid-19 pandemic, Accord CLG and Accord Northern Ireland have established a new relationship support phone line that will be staffed by experienced couples and relationships counselors. This will be a free service but calls are charged at a local rate.

Accord’s specialist in counseling (marriage and relationships), Mary Johnston said, “Accord is very conscious of those experiencing difficulties in their relationships and family lives as we are confined to home during this unprecedented period for all in society. The circumstances in which we are living now can increase stress and pressure on relationships and in families. To help address these challenges, Accord has established a relationship support phone line to enable callers to speak to experienced couples and relationship counselors in order to talk through the difficulties they are experiencing”.

The support line is open from 9.00 am – 8.00 pm Monday to Friday. Please see contact details below:

  • Accord NI – 028 9568 0151 or 00353 1 531 3331
  • Accord CLG – 01 531 3331

The three Accord companies – Accord Northern Ireland Catholic Marriage Care Service CLG (Accord NI); Accord Dublin Catholic Marriage Care Service CLG (Accord Dublin); and Accord Catholic Marriage Care Service CLG (Accord CLG), which represents 34 Centres in the State outside of Dublin; all operate in 54 centers throughout the island. Accord is committed to providing professional support for the pastoral needs of individuals at different stages in their development: in schools, through relationship and sexuality education programs; by helping couples prepare for the sacrament of marriage; and, to couples and individuals seeking marriage and relationship counseling.
