We offer confidential support for women and men aged 14 years and over, for recent or historical sexual assault. All our counsellors are women. Services are available whether or not you choose not to report a crime to the police.
We provide medical examinations 24 hour a day for anyone who has experienced a recent sexual assault.

We provide counselling, advice, support and referrals to people who are victims of recent or historical sexual assault.
We can also provide information and support with legal matters, such as accompanying you to appointments with the police or the courts.
We see clients at various community centres across the St George and Sutherland local government areas, and this can be discussed with the counsellor over the phone.
