connectEDspace - support for young people

Young people can face all sorts of pressures – including problems at school, with friends or at home.
connectEDspace is a website by Relationships Australia Victoria (RAV), dedicated to young people to help provide all the information they need to deal with the stuff they go through each day.

Aboriginal Family and Relationship Support

RAV provides support to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families and individuals to help strengthen family relationships.

Counselling provides an opportunity to talk with a professionally trained person to discuss couple issues, conflicts with friends, relationship breakdown, parenting, domestic violence, anxiety, depression, grief, sexual problems, childhood sexual abuse, stress and work related tensions and disputes.


Child and Parenting

We provide programs designed to improve the wellbeing and safety of children and young people. We also offer group work and post separation parenting courses. Individual mums and dads come together with others in similar situations to share their experiences and learn new skills.

Tuning in to Kids (Cranbourne)

Tuning in to Kids is a highly regarded and well-researched program that supports parents to develop and enhance their parenting skills, focusing on building the relationship between parent and child.

Do you:

  • have difficulty managing your child’s behaviour?

This free program teaches parents:

  • to be aware and to regulate your own emotions
  • to be aware of your child’s emotions
  • to use your child’s emotional experiences as an opportunity for closeness and teaching
  • skills to help your child verbally name their emotions
  • skills to help your child to problem solve
  • to guide your child’s behaviour with appropriate limits.
