In today’s world, it’s never been easier to connect with people quickly. In ‘Relative Strangers’ (working title) we follow young people who are considering using social media to contact a family member they’ve never met or not seen for a long time. Whilst the simplicity of connecting online might appeal, knowing how to navigate what happens next can be difficult, without additional support.
This programme will bring two family members together for four days, whilst they get to know each other (again), under the guidance of experienced relationship experts. Whilst not every attempt will be successful, these experts are highly experienced in helping families to reunite, and the hope is that positive and lasting relationships will be forged.
Your application will be treated in confidence and there is no obligation to take part.
