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.



When contemplating counselling, many questions may come to mind.  Browse a list of answers to questions we are frequently asked.

1. Is Relationships Australia Victoria a dating agency?

We are not a dating agency. We are an organisation committed to offering relationship supports services such as counselling, family dispute resolution and relationship education courses to individuals, couples and families.

As such, we do not provide services to help you find a partner. We can, however, offer you advice, counselling and education in how to improve your current or future relationships.


2. Do you have online counselling?

No, we do not currently offer online counselling. You can book a face-to-face counselling session by calling 1300 364 277. If you live in a rural or remote location in Victoria, you can access our telephone counselling service by calling 1800 817 569.


3. How much do your counselling and family dispute resolution services cost?

We are a not-for-profit community organisation and our counselling and family dispute resolution services are only partially government funded, so fees are normally charged. However, we do try to make our services as affordable as possible.

Our fees are determined on a sliding scale (based on the client's ability to pay). We have a surcharge on after-hours appointments.

When you call to make a booking, we will advise you of the fees payable.
