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've developed a suite of free tip sheets and information sheets on a range of topics.


A range of tip sheets (knowhows) for young people are also available on our connectEDspace website - developed specifically for young people. If there is a specific topic you would like information on, please email us to let us know.

If you need further support, visit our LocationsServices or Contact Us pages to find out more or get in touch with us.
