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.


Relationships Australia Victoria (RAV) works with staff in small and large organisations to explore and maximise performance, wellbeing and workplace outcomes. A range of training and workshops for organisations are available, providing professionals with targeted opportunities to expand their knowledge and skills, and better support their staff, clients and customers.

Customised training

In addition to the workshops detailed in this brochure, RAV can tailor training to suit the needs of particular organisations, management, staff and professional groups who work with a variety of clients across a range of sectors. RAV Training works closely with organisations to identify, develop and deliver relevant training.

The length and timing of workshops can be negotiated to suit your organisation, with workshops able to be conducted on site at your organisation, at a RAV centre, or at a chosen venue.

The cost of the workshops can be negotiated according to the number of workshops, resources and participants.

Responding to Family Violence in Workplaces Training

One of the fundamental values that RAV holds is that everyone has the right to feel safe and free from abuse and violence in their relationships. Family violence is not only about physical assault but refers to an array of power and control which may include direct or indirect threats, sexual assault, emotional and psychological torment, economic control, property damage, social isolation and behaviour which causes a person to live in fear.

As well as the impact of family violence an individual’s personal life, family violence can also affect workplaces in a variety of ways. These include the need for time off from work to locate and access support services, the potential for parties involved in conflict to present at the other person’s workplace and demanding to see them. Workplaces can also be used as public drop-off points for children.

For these reasons, RAV’s Training team has developed family violence workshops specifically designed for workplaces. Through our extensive research, practice and training expertise, RAV can deliver high-quality training to workplaces on the issues of family violence.
