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.

Men's Behaviour Change Program (Knox)

The Men’s Behaviour Change Program (MBCP) is for men wanting to end their use of violence and other problematic behaviour in their relationships. The program is designed to help men to stop hurting the people they love most, and in the process become better partners, better fathers and develop an improved sense of self.

The first steps to ending family violence are to:

  • acknowledge that it's happening in your relationship
  • take responsibility for what's been happening, rather than blaming others or making excuses for your behaviour.

Getting started

Call our Boronia Centre to arrange a time for an assessment where you will have a one-on-one interview.

This will involve talking about what has been happening in your family and relationships, telling you more about the program and helping you identify the behaviours you want to change.

Program staff will also make contact with your family to offer support and any assistance they might want. We do this because people exposed to family violence need support.
