Family Relationship Centres
How can the FRC help me?
Our Family Relationship Centres (FRC) are for families experiencing relationship breakdown, particularly those who are going through the process of separation or who have separated. We provide a range of services to assist families who are experiencing challenges within their relationships, including those going through separation and divorce. You can talk about your situation with our highly trained staff who will listen to you in a safe, non-judgemental and confidential environment.
If you are interested in our mediation services, also known as Family Dispute Resolution, please watch our videos below. The videos contain information about mediation at the FRC, the legal context around mediation, the voice of children, property and financial arrangements, ensuring families are safe in mediation and moving forward after separation.
