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.

We're Still Here: Services Still Available

8:58am Monday, 18 May 2020

The current coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic is having a significant impact on all members of the community. It’s an unprecedented and challenging time, and our thoughts are with everyone who’s affected by the current circumstances. The safety and wellbeing of our clients, staff members and the community is our priority. For this reason, we’re not currently providing face-to-face services, however we are committed to supporting people throughout the COVID-19 crisis.

As such, we’re still delivering many of our services, via telephone, online and video platforms, through our 17 centres across metropolitan Melbourne and regional Victoria and a central office in Camberwell.

As these services are being provided through online programs and telephone appointments, they are accessible to people across Victoria.
