Our free and confidential service is available to anyone who is impacted by sexual violence. It doesn’t matter how long ago it happened, whether you think it was ‘serious’, or whether it happened to you or you are worried about someone else – if it’s impacting your life, we can help. Our specialist practitioners offer a safe and caring space and will help you work through your options for support and find the services you need to heal and move forward.
Sexual violence is any forced or unwanted sexual behaviour that makes a person feel uncomfortable, threatened or scared. This can include:
Protecting children and young people is everyone’s responsibility. We will report any suspected child sexual abuse, in the best interests of the child and community.
