Family Relationship Centre Ringwood

The Ringwood Family Relationship Centre has been operating since July 2006 and is managed by EACH Social and Community Health who is the lead organisation in a consortium with other partner services. EACH Social and Community Health delivers a range of community health services within a social model of health that improve the physical, mental and social well-being of individuals, families and communities in Melbourne's eastern suburbs.

The Centre is located at Level 1, 68 Charter Street, Ringwood and is situated near Eastland Shopping Centre and the Ringwood train station as well as services such as Victoria Legal Aid, Family Assistance Office, Child Support Agency and Centrelink.  The centre provides advice, referral and assists parents and grandparents to negotiate post separation parenting arrangements.

The Centre offers a gateway to a wide range of services in the community. Individual, joint and group sessions are offered to help separating families and others family members such as grandparents make workable parenting arrangements for the care of children. Clients will be provided with information about not-for-profit services, government agencies, voluntary or private organisations and individual practitioners that operate in their community as well as providing client access to a wide range of resources through our community library including access to internet and phone.

A key aspect of the centre’s work is the provision of joint parenting negotiation sessions which focus on assisting parents to agree on parenting arrangements appropriate for their children while manageable for the parents. Group Informational seminars are held regularly in which clients are strongly recommended to attend as this provides an overview of what clients can expect when they come to the service.

The centre also has co-located specialist counsellors for men and women as well as supported by a range of innovative and practical early intervention services.  These services include Parent-Child Therapy, Girls with Attitude, Grief and Loss Workshops, Grandparents Group, Parents Resolving Conflict, Renovation Your Relationship, Fathering after Separation, Men’s Behaviour Change Group and Indigenous Men’s and Women’s Network.
