Our continued support to you
The Sexual Assault & Family Violence Centre is continuing to deliver essential services to people who are experiencing sexual assault and family violence during the COVID-19 pandemic.
We are committed to ensuring the safety of our people, our clients and the community. As a result, we have mobilised our workforce to support clients remotely and will continue delivering our case management, counselling and early intervention services, via telephone and online platforms.
We recommend anyone looking for support or wanting to refer clients to our service, to contact us via email or telephone.
All of our training and events have been postponed and we are looking at alternative ways to deliver these services in the future.
We know in times of crisis, sexual assault and family violence can become more frequent and severe. We will continue to prioritise the safety of people impacted by sexual assault, and women, children and young people experiencing family violence and support them through this period.
