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.
