For Natural Family Planning

The Couple to Couple League

The Couple to Couple League has been teaching Natural Family Planning for 40 years internationally, and for 30 of those years in the UK. Our commitment is to teach you all you need to know to use NFP throughout your life - and to do this in a context which helps you build your love together, and build your marriage.

For Your Marriage

Teams of Our Lady

Teams of Our Lady is an international Christian lay movement that works to enrich married spirituality for couples who seek to live their marriages sacramentally.

Marriage Care

‘We specialise in helping couples build and sustain strong, fulfilling, healthy relationships, and in providing support in times of relationship difficulty. Why? Because better relationships make for better lives, more stable families, and a stronger society.’

The Cor Project

Founded by Christopher West and inspired by John Paul II’s Theology of the Body, The Cor Project aims to reframe questions of human existence in such a way that the divine plan for man and woman can be perceived and embraced in all its beauty and splendour.

For Community

National Board of Catholic Women

Pro-Life

SPUC

‘SPUC campaigns to end abortion. We advocate the need for a consistent life ethic – one that values the lives of all human beings - and so we also campaign against other direct threats to the lives of vulnerable individuals, such as euthanasia and embryo abuse.’

40 Days for Life

40 Days for Life is an internationally coordinated 40-day campaign that aims to end abortion locally through prayer and fasting, community outreach, and a peaceful all-day vigil in front of abortion businesses.

Right To Life UK

Rachel’s Vineyard is a healing ministry for those who are suffering from the trauma of abortion(s) or have been closely connected to someone who is; this includes siblings, grandparents, aunts etc.

Good Counsel Network

A life-affirming women’s organisation which offers a pregnancy test, moral support, medical information, legal advice, and practical help to women seeking abortion.
