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.


As the elders of our communities, you have a right to be treated with equality, dignity and respect.

Our aim is the empowerment of older generations through:

  • prioritising your choices and preferences in regard to wellbeing and support
  • advocating for seniors rights at an individual and community level
  • providing education on issues affecting older generations.

We recognise that older adults deserve:

  • to enjoy life
  • to have their culture, sexuality and life choices respected
  • to be independent
  • to be empowered and have positive self-esteem
  • to be free from harm and mistreatment
  • autonomy to choose and make decisions
  • to be treated with dignity and respect
  • to be acknowledged as important
  • to be valued
  • opportunities for participation, volunteering and lifelong learning.

When dealing with us, you can expect:

  • support in maintaining independence and autonomy
  • participation in all aspects of decision-making
  • a focus on strengthening important relationships.
