The result is the Relational Thinking Network, of which Jubilee Centre is a founder member.
The Relationships Foundation (RF) grew out of the work of the Jubilee Centre in 1994 and exists to strengthen relationships across private and public life.

Another RF project, Keep Time for Children promotes the importance of family time at weekends particularly for families with school age children.
