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.

COVID-19 - Service delivery continues

Relationships Australia Victoria
10:18am Friday, 20 March 2020

The wellbeing of our staff, clients and the wider community is our priority.

As such, due to the current Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation, as of Tuesday 24 March, we are no longer providing face-to-face services from our Relationships Australia Victoria centres and Family Relationship Centres. Clients should not attend these centres. Our headspace centres in Bairnsdale and Wonthaggi are currently still providing face-to-face services.

We are committed to supporting Victorians during this time, and are continuing to deliver services via telephone, videoconferencing and online.

We will contact clients with upcoming appointments in the near future. If you have any questions or concerns about an appointment, service or training with us, please contact the relevant RAV centre.

To book an appointment with us, or to find out more about how we can support you during this time:

You can also book an appointment for our online, typing-based, chat message counselling service.

We know that this is a difficult and concerning time for many in our community, and our thoughts are with those who are impacted by Coronavirus. If you are feeling stressed or anxious about the current situation, this tip sheet is a free resource you can download.

We are continuing to monitor the COVID-19 situation and the way in which we deliver services, in line with advice of the World Health Organisation, Australian Government Department of Health, Victorian Government Department of Health and Human Services, and Australia’s Chief Medical Officer. We will provide further updates as required in the future.

Thank you for your understanding.
