Incorrect Media Reporting on our Media Release dated 7 June 2020

Jun 16, 2020

Relationships Australia issued a media release on 7 June 2020 announcing the results of its recent survey on the effects of COVID-19 on relationships. We note that some media outlets are attributing statistics to Relationships Australia which are unrelated to that survey, and which do not originate from our organisation.

Specifically, Relationships Australia has made no findings of a “300% increase” in couples seeking separation advice. These statistics, originally quoted in a newspaper article which also featured some of the findings of the Relationships Australia survey, originate from another source, unrelated to Relationships Australia.
