Bristol Community Family Trust
BCFT aims to reduce family breakdown and strengthen marriages and families in Bristol by offering marriage & relationship education and support across the life-cycle. All couples getting married, having a baby or sending a child to school, will eventually be offered "state of the art" research-based relationship education. Since September 2002, BCFT courses have been offered through the civil Registrars, churches and wedding outlets to all couples getting married.
Let's Stick Together - For new Mums and Dads. A free one hour session on relationships, usually included as part of a post-natal or parent group!
LISTENING, LOVING, LAUGHING - For singles or couples. A one day masterclass in how to make the most of your relationships. Great fun, really useful and not remotely scary!
INSIGHT - The ideal marriage preparation course if you are engaged, recently married or just thinking about it.
The Marriage Course - For married couples who want to make a good marriage great. Also ideal for couples who need a bit of a boost. No embarrassing group work! Just listen to talks and then discuss the issues privately with your loved one. 8 evenings.
The BCFT website, www.bcft.co.uk, provides research summaries on marriage and marriage education, including a brief description of both PREP and FOCCUS programmes. PREP is currently the only marriage education programme in the world with published evidence that divorce risk is substantially lowered.
