Abstract

Family Relationship Centres (FRC) offer information, advice, and mediation to people with relationship difficulties, and those starting or ending relationships. They are a major part of the 2006 family law reform in Australia, with 65 Centres scheduled to be operational by July 2008. This article profiles several of the Centres and includes interviews with Gai Campbell, Paula Washington, and Steve Hackett - FRC clinicians and managers from Ringwood in Victoria, Townsville in Queensland, and Penrith in New South Wales. They describe the Centres' services, clients, typical processes, and any allegations of family violence.
