Reconnect Family Counselling & Mediation

If you’re a young person and you’re disconnected from your family, you can feel alone and isolated. But you don’t have to. We can provide the support you need, not only to live independently, but to re-establish healthy relationships with your family.

We offer family-centred counselling and mediation services that are designed to help young people and their families reconnect and reduce the risk of youth homelessness. From overcoming practical obstacles to rebuilding relationships, our team can give you the one-on-one support and advice you need to rebuild your family connections.
