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.


A Parenting Plan is a resource to help separating parents work out arrangements for the care of their children.

A parenting plan:

  • helps clarify children's arrangements
  • helps both parents know what is expected of them
  • helps bring some certainty into the world for children
  • is a valuable asset as time passes and circumstances change
  • is worked out and signed by both parents.

There is also a checklist to help you fill out the parenting plan.

Parenting plans can be arranged as part of family dispute resolution. Information about family dispute resolution is available here, or by contacting your nearest centre.
