These Centres have a focus on providing family dispute resolution (mediation) to enable separating families achieve workable parenting arrangements outside the Court system. Whether you are going through separation, starting a relationship, want to make your relationship stronger, or having relationship difficulties, our Centres can can help.

Funded by the Australian Government, the centres are staffed by independent, professionally qualified staff offering confidential and impartial services in a welcoming, safe and confidential environment.

All our Centres have facilities for children and free internet access to help you find more information online. Many of the services are free or are offered on a sliding scale, according to your level of income.
