Family Planning Victoria provides a professional advice and education consultation service for families, carers and professionals to build their knowledge, skills and capacity to support and educate their client/family member in relation to their reproductive and sexual health, sexuality and relationships.

The professional advice and education consultation involves an FPV Educator working to advise and educate the networks of an individual. The individual is not present during the consultation. The aim of the consultation is to clarify pertinent issues and to provide advice, education and resources for the individual's ongoing support and education. Sessions usually are an hour long and you can book multiple consultations if required.

How much does it cost?

  • $250.00 per hour gst free

Criteria for consult

Criteria for professional advice and education consultations:

  • the consultation is in reference to an individual (for consultations in reference to multiple people visit Tailored Workforce Development Sessions)
  • the individual being discussed has a cognitive disability

What is the process?

All initial enquiries for professional advice and education consultations should be directed to the Disability and Community Educator on 03 9257 0130 or disability@fpv.org.au

Once criteria for the service has been confirmed, a tentative date will be booked for the consult. Payment must be made, before the consult, for it to proceed. Referrers will be required to ensure that the intake form is completed and returned a week before the consultation. Once the consultation is complete, the referrer will be provided with a summary of discussion (including suggestions and recommended resources) for ongoing education with the individual.
