Our history

The Positive Lifestyle Counselling Services, previously known as the Positive Lifestyle Centre was started in 1993 by Major Ted Gray to assist people going through the court system especially those who re-offended time after time, which in turn placed them at great risk both emotionally and physically.

Realizing a great need for these people to address why they repeatedly offended the Positive Lifestyle Program was implemented. Today the Centre is a growing network linked to many other services conducted in two shop fronts opposite the Dandenong Magistrates court.

Ten employed staff and six volunteers make up the team. Students from various agencies attend for placement in Drug and Alcohol and general counselling.

The Salvation Army acknowledges the Traditional Owners of country throughout Australia and recognises their continuing connection to land, waters and community. We pay our respects to them and their cultures; and to elders both past and present.
