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 provide a range of support and recovery services and programs for those who use family violence, and for those who are affected by family violence.

We use a Family Safety Model to work with all family members affected by family violence. 

Counselling

We provide individual and family counselling for women and children affected by family violence, when appropriate and safe to do so, and following a comprehensive assessment.


Repair-enting

Repair-enting is a program for fathers who have completed a men’s behaviour change program and want to strengthen or repair their relationships with their children.

For current programs, please see our family violence courses.
