Young people's relationships put to the test at Worcester event
Updated 5:32pm Tuesday 4th March 2014 in News
LOVED-UP couples found out if their relationships were healthy at an event at The Hive, in Worcester, the day after Valentine's Day.
About 50 people turned up to the Love is..? campaign, run by Vinspired volunteer leader Gareth Owen and his group of volunteers from Team V Worcester, to measure their relationships with a game of Mr and Mrs, love-themed treats and to give their ideas of what makes a relationship healthy.
Mr Owen said he hoped awareness was raised but some responses showed more needed to be done.
He said: "I thought it went well even with the rain and floods that had been happening, and we had a lot of support from Relate and Stonham (Home Group).
"The young people gave a varied response to the questions like, 'Is it alright for your partner to know where you are all the time?' and 'Is it okay for the partner not wanting to meet your family and friends?'. This shows that more needs to be done with teaching relationships in schools."
The campaign was the second for the team with the final campaign due to be unveiled to them on Saturday, March 15.
For more information on the campaigns, or to volunteer on the next one, contact Gareth Owen by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
