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 believe in strengthening families and providing services that cater to community needs. We understand that traditional family structures are diverse. Our staff endeavour to work with members of diverse communities to provide information and assistance on a whole range of family issues.

In collaboration with many organisations across the state, we coordinate workshops, forums, meetings, networks and support groups to meet the growing needs of Victoria's multicultural community.

We are committed to providing access to our services for both established and emerging migrant communities in both metropolitan and regional Victoria.

DVD resource for migrant families

RAV has produced "Building Strong Families", a DVD resource for migrants and refugees settling in Australia.

In 2015/16, we offered services and programs to clients born in more than 130 countries.

Our centres work collaboratively with a broad range of community organisations, actively participate in local networks to improve referral pathways and processes, and are continuously enhancing our understand of diverse communities and local needs.

We ensure that our services are accessible and responsive to culturally and linguistically diverse clients through extended session times, the use of accredited interpreters, the provision of plain English document translations, and being aware of clients' different cultural norms.
