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.
Would you like to work for us? Relationships Australia Victoria (RAV) is a leading and valued provider of specialist family and relationship services. We are a community-based not-for-profit organisation, with no religious affiliations.
Relationships Australia Victoria (RAV) has joined the Dandenong Multidisciplinary Centre (MDC) to provide coordinated interventions to perpetrators of family violence.
The Dandenong MDC was established in 2014 to provide a justice response and support service for victim-survivors of sexual crimes. On 21 April 2017, the Minister for Police, Hon Lisa Neville, announced the expansion of the centre to include specialist family violence police and community service responses.
RAV's specialist Family Violence Practitioners are participating in case coordination meetings with Victoria Police, Child Protection and other services to prioritise the safety and protection of victim-survivors of family violence, sexual assault and child abuse. They are also providing a range of other services to perpetrators of family violence, including initial telephone contact via the Dandenong MDC and further case work at RAV centres in southern metropolitan Melbourne. This approach provides timely interventions to perpetrators to prevent further violence, while also ensuring that the MDC remains a safe and confidential environment for victim-survivors of family violence and sexual assault.
