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.

Relationships Australia Victoria and the Royal Flying Doctor Service (Victoria) are continuing to support individuals, families, emergency service workers, children and young people impacted by the 2019/20 East Gippsland bushfires.

We can provide:

Services are available face-to-face (with COVID Safe measures) across East Gippsland, and via video and telephone appointments.
