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.

Sexual Trauma 1st Aid Training Workshops

This 3-hour essential workshop helps to raise understanding of sexual assault in our community and offers vital skills for handling disclosures of sexual harm. The workshop will focus on empowering anyone in a ‘helping profession/role', with practical skills and evidence-based knowledge to respond to a disclosure in a trauma-informed ‘best-practice’ manner.

SASS develops Easy Read resources!

SASS is pleased to announce that thanks to a grant from the Tasmanian Community Fund we have converted a series of our most-accessed resources and factsheets into Easy Read.
