Family Planning Victoria no longer offers disability counselling
From May 2019, Family Planning Victoria (FPV) will no longer be providing disability counselling services.
The decision to close this service was made after an internal review of our disability services program in light of the changing nature of disability funding.
This was not a decision we made lightly.
FPV remains committed to addressing the needs of individuals with cognitive disability and our disability education and professional development sessions will continue.
