National Collaboration Informing Local Service Delivery

Relationships Australia has long been committed to harnessing the collective wisdom and experience of our team across the country. Almost twenty networks, working groups and communities of practice have been established over the years, including our Relationships Australia Indigenous Network (RAIN) and our Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Community of Practice group, both of which lead the organisation in building capacity across the Federation.


Promoting the resilience & wellbeing of children across Australia

In November 2021, Relationships Australia was proud to take ownership of the popular Family Connect program, an online resource aimed at increasing emotional wellbeing and encouraging families to connect in practical and meaningful ways.

The program, created by Uplifting Australia, is a four-step process designed to assist families in how they interact.
