Upper Mount Gravatt Family Relationship Centre provides services for families living in and around Brisbane.
The Centre provides information and referral services for families at any stage of their relationships. Separating or separated families can be assisted with individual interviews, group and joint sessions. The Centre conducts workshops and courses that offer support for strengthening family relationships.
Staff at the Centre can assist people with advice on parenting after separation, helping parents to focus on the needs of their children. The Centre’s family dispute resolution service helps parents to resolve conflict and develop workable arrangements for the care of their children, including parenting plans. Services are always offered on the basis that the best interest of the children is our highest priority.
Upper Mount Gravatt Family Relationship Centre is located on Sanders Street, Upper Mount Gravatt, within a new shopping centre, called The Village. Our open plan reception area is located on the ground floor with good access for clients with disabilities or mobility issues. There is off street parking available.
Families accessing the Centre’s family dispute resolution service are supported through a three step process:
- Step 1 – For each party to the dispute, a one on one session with a family dispute resolution practitioner is provided.
- Step 2 – If, after seeing both parties, family dispute resolution is assessed as appropriate, each parent is invited to attend a group information session.
- Step 3 – Parties attend a joint family dispute resolution session. This joint session can take a number of forms to accommodate varying needs. Formats include: all parties meet in the same room, a shuttle arrangement where each party is in a separate room and the family dispute resolution practitioner moves between the rooms, or the session can be conducted via the telephone. Practitioners manage the process from beginning to end using their professional training and experience to facilitate the most constructive environment.
