Family Relationship Centres

Linking you to a range of services to support family relationships and providing specialist support when separation occurs.

Family Relationship Centres provide information and confidential assistance to couples and families and we can refer you to the services that can assist you, whether it is beginning new relationships, strengthening relationships, or when separating. Family Relationship Centres are located in Adelaide, Elizabeth, and Salisbury with outreach options at Port Adelaide, Nurioopta and Gawler. If none of these locations are convenient for you, please visit the Family Relationship Centre website to find the closest centre to you.

Our Centres are co-located with a wide-range of other Relationships Australia SA services and we have strong referral links to other services provided by many organisations.

How we can help you

We can connect people to the right services, support, or personal education and skills training about any issue affecting their relationships. This includes mental health problems, gambling, family and domestic violence, relationship problems, and parenting or grand-parenting issues.

Separating parents

We can help separating parents to focus on their children, manage their family disputes more effectively and reach parenting agreements or property arrangements without going to court, and to minimise conflict and acrimony.

If you are separated or in the process of separating, our Family Dispute Resolution service can help you and your former partner (co-parent or carer) come to an agreement on parenting issues. In most situations, Family Dispute Resolution is now compulsory for separating parents before starting legal proceedings about the care of their children, (there are some situations where it is not possible, for example, where safety is an issue). Before proceeding to Family Dispute Resolution, we will meet with you individually to discuss your situation. Whatever the issue or difficulty, you can call to talk to one of our Family Advisors or drop in to see us.

Resources and information for families

We also offer child-focused information sessions online for parents using our Family Dispute Resolution service.
