Get Support

At SASS, we are committed to providing trauma-informed and evidence-based support services for survivors of sexual violence and the people who support them.

Our goal is to create a safe and nurturing environment where victims and survivors are heard, are supported at all stages of their recovery,  and develop the strategies, skills, networks and confidence that allow us to live a good life.

We understand that each survivor's journey is unique, and we are here to offer guidance, resources, and unwavering support every step of the way.

Supporting survivors

Our counsellors are here to bear witness to the assault and abuse you have experienced, and offer you a safe space to share your story, and make sense of it. We work with adults, children and families to provide trauma-informed support, counselling, and advocacy to help you navigate the challenges you may face after experiencing sexual violence, with utmost confidentiality and respect.

Contact one of our specialist counsellors to learn more about what might work for you.

Supporting the supporters

We recognize the crucial role that friends and family play in a victim-survivor's recovery. Our support services extend to loved ones, offering guidance on how to provide emotional support, understanding, and resources to survivors while also coping with the impact of what has happened to a person you love on you.

Contact us to discuss how we can help you, and/or the person you care about.

24 hour Helpline

Our 24/7 confidential helpline is available to provide immediate support, guidance, and a compassionate listening ear. Whether it's the middle of the night or a moment of crisis, we are here to offer help and reassurance, ensuring you never have to face this journey alone.

Group Programs

Sometimes a group-based activity is the perfect alternative or addition to talk-based therapy. You might want to explore pottery, find your power through martial arts, reconnect with mindful yoga, or just get out of your day-to-day routine by going on an adventure with like-minded people.  All programs are free for people who are engaged with SASS. See the full range of upcoming programs here.

Accessing the National Redress Scheme

SASS supports people to access the National Redress Scheme. The National Redress Scheme was established to provide support and payment to people who have experienced institutional child sexual abuse.

Accessing free resources

Whether you're a survivor seeking support, an advocate looking for informative articles, or an educator in search of resources, we've worked with our partners in the sector to curate a hub of content and resources that you can download, use and share.
