About Us

Relationships Australia Victoria (RAV) is a community-based, not-for-profit organisation, with no religious affiliations. Our services are for all members of the community, regardless of their religion, age, gender, sexual orientation, lifestyle choice, cultural background or economic circumstances. We respect the rights of all people in all their diversity to live life fully within their families and communities with dignity and safety, and to enjoy healthy relationships.

Our objective is to relieve the suffering, distress and helplessness of vulnerable and disadvantaged people so as to enhance their physical, social and emotional wellbeing.

Our vision is for positive, safe and respectful relationships for couples, families, schools, workplaces and communities.

RAV provides services from 15 centres in metropolitan Melbourne and regional Victoria. The corporate support team is based in Camberwell.

We focus on providing effective services to strengthen relationships and social connections for individuals and families, and in schools, workplaces and communities across all life stages.

How can we help?
We provide a wide range of family and relationship support services, including counselling, family dispute resolution (FDR), relationship education and family violence services. Counselling can help you to explore your concerns and difficulties in a supportive environment, and clarify your situation, gain new perspectives and work towards change.
How much do services cost?
We are a not-for-profit community organisation and our counselling services are only partially government funded, so fees are normally charged for most of our services. However, we do try to make our services as affordable as possible. When you call us, we can discuss the fees payable for the service you’re interested in.
Where are you located?
We have 15 centres across metropolitan Melbourne and regional Victoria. We offer telephone counselling and online counselling for clients who are unable to attend one of our centres. We also offer outreach services in a number of our programs. Our training services can also be delivered onsite to organisations and workplaces.
