Our History

Relationships Australia was established in 1948 to support Australian soldiers returning from World War II to reconnect with their families. In 1994 our name was changed from the National Marriage Guidance Council of Australia to Relationships Australia to reflect the changing needs and family choices of Australians.

Relationships Australia Canberra & Region has worked to support all people in the ACT and southern NSW region to achieve positive and respectful relationships since 1964. Throughout our years of operation our services have morphed to respond to new and emerging needs in our communities. Our services now include:

  • counselling for individuals, couples, children, young people and families;
  • mediation for families and couples who are separating;
  • relationship education;
  • parenting support programs;
  • family referral services;
  • family violence support; and
  • children's contact services.
