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.


Relationship education

RAV offers a variety of relationship education courses to help you share experiences, connect with others, and learn new skills to improve your situation. We also provide primary prevention and early intervention programs in universal services such as schools and health centres.

  • 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...

  • Family Violence

    We provide a range of group programs to support people who have experienced violence and abuse.

  • Marriage & Commitment Preparation

    Our relationship, commitment and marriage preparation programs help you prepare for your future lives together.

  • Relationships

    Relationships can be enriching and great fun, but they usually require hard work as well.  We offer sessions for couples, or for individuals to discuss relationship concerns.

  • Seniors

    We aim to improve the wellbeing, safety and sense of fulfillment in older Australians by strengthening relationships, facilitating social connection, and reducing loneliness and isolation.

  • Separation

    We offer courses to assist couples with the difficult, often stressful, issues associated with separation and divorce.

  • Women's Programs

    We offer a variety of programs to help women explore and review their lives in a supportive environment.
