From all the staff at Relationships Australia Victoria, we wish you a peaceful holiday season, and a happy and safe new year.
Thank you for your continued support. We look forward to working with our clients, colleagues and community partners again in 2021.
All our centres, including headspace services and the Open Place Drop In Centre, will be closed from 25 December 2020 to 3 January 2021 (inclusive). Our services will re-commence from Monday 4 January 2021.
