24 hour help-line Counselling and support Training

SASS is a free and confidential support service for southern Tasmanian people of all ages who have been affected by any form of sexual violence. We also provide Redress Scheme Support Services across Tasmania.

Our mission is to work towards achieving a healthier,  safer community in Tasmania, free of sexual harm.

We provide information and support to professionals, and offer a range of training workshops and education sessions throughout Tasmania.

Join our Team

SASS currently has two positions available for passionate, energetic and committed professionals. We are seeking a Therapeutic Specialist to join the team in our Harmful Sexual Behaviours Program; this is a fixed-term, part-time position located in Launceston or Devonport (with some flexibility in work location). We are also seeking an Administration Officer to join our Hobart team. This is also a part-time, fixed-term position.

Sexual Assault Awareness Month

April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM)! Our vision is to achieve a community free of sexual trauma. To do this, we need to raise awareness and educate Tasmanians – and this is where you come in! By participating in SAAM, you can help raise awareness right across the community, in schools, workplaces, homes, social settings and even online.
