RAV provides a range of services to support children, young people and their families.
We focus on a whole of family approach with expertise working across the life cycle. This means that we are able to offer support and counselling for individuals, couples and parents, and support relationships between parents and their children or teenagers at different stages of their lives.
RAV's services for children, young people and families include: Child and family counselling, Family Dispute Resolution (including Child-Inclusive Family Dispute Resolution) and Relationship education programs for children, mothers, fathers and parents.
We have also developed My Parents 'n' Me, a group supporting children after separation. This group was developed in response to the significant numbers of parents experiencing high conflict. These parents are not only in conflict with each other, but may also be struggling with entrenched mental health difficulties. The children who attend this group often have parents who present with a high prevalence disorder, have not been able to resolve their separation and divorce matters on their own or through dispute resolution, or are involved in prolonged and protracted Family Court matters.
The majority of the clients who use this service are experiencing financial, abuse, or other disadvantage.
RAV does not provide a crisis service. If you need urgent help, please contact Kids Helpline.
