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.


Family Violence

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

Men's Behaviour Change Program (Shepparton)

Our Men’s Behaviour Change Program is for men who want to end their use of controlling and abusive behaviours, including violent incidents, in their relationships. It’s designed to help men to stop hurting the people they love most, develop an improved sense of self, and in the process become better partners and fathers.

To get started, call our centre to make a time to attend an information session and assessment.

We will provide you with information about the program and determine if it’s right for you. You will also meet privately with a group facilitator to talk about what has been happening in your family and relationships, and begin to identify your goals that are related to the behaviours you want to change.

Family safety is an important aspect of the program, so our staff will also make contact with your family members to offer them support and assistance they might need. We do this because people exposed to family violence need support.

Please note, you must attend both the information session and assessment before joining the group.
