Football fans do not talk enough about relationships, says Barnet charity Relate
Football fans are too scared to seek help with their relationships because of social stigmas, according to a Barnet charity.
Relate is placing adverts in bathrooms at Tottenham Hotspur’s home ground White Hart Lane asking men if the big game is more important than their other half.
A survey published by the relationship charity showed 53 per cent of men believe there is a stigma attached to seeking expert advice.
A further 26 per cent of men said they would use Relate services if they knew they wouldn’t be judged, while 19 per cent admitted that their relationship us not healthy.
Relate manager Hazel Hewett said: “Getting in touch with Relate can seem like a big step which is why we have developed this campaign to normalise accessing relationship support and reassure men that the support they get from us is always non-judgemental and confidential.”
