Family Relationship Centre Macquarie Park

Who we are

The North Ryde Family Relationship Centre is managed by Relationships Australia New South Wales and is a local grassroots community service.  We work closely with families and other local services to assist parents focus on the changing developmental and emotional needs of their children during changes in families.

About the Centre

When you call, or drop in, you will speak to one of our staff who provide you with information and arrange a time for you to speak with a Family Advisor.  The Family Advisor will talk with you about the relationship matters that you wish to discuss. Once they understand your family’s needs, they will work with you to plan the next step forward.  Often this will involve inviting your spouse or partner (current or former) to attend a similar session.

Where appropriate you may be referred on to our Family Dispute Resolution service where practitioners work with parents separately and together to facilitate ‘child focussed’ discussion about ongoing family issues/disputes.  This is usually conducted by two practitioners and aims to help parents reach agreements on parenting arrangements that are best for their children.

Issues that you might want to discuss

Family Relationship Centres have been established to help people discuss any matters relating to strengthening family relationships, keeping families together, and assisting families through separation.  We have a wide range of resources available including printed material, CDs and DVDs and you can also access the Family Relationships Online website and the Family Relationships Advice Line from the Centre.

Referrals and other services

We work closely with and refer to many other local community and government organisations that provide a variety of services including counselling, legal advice, migrant services and group work.  The centre provides two groups, 'Kids in Focus' and Understanding Family Dispute Resolution.  In addition, a range of other groups such as Managing Anger, Step Families and Building Better Relationships are also available at the Centre.

Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Services

We have several bilingual staff members who can speak Mandarin, Arabic, Spanish and Singhalese, and we also have access to interpreters.
