Crisis Care

We can be contacted anytime, day or night, if a child, young person or adult in the Barwon or Wimmera region has experienced a sexual assault in the previous 14 days and needs immediate support.

Our staff are on call 24 hours to attend and offer emotional support, practical assistance and information about the options that are available to someone who has recently been sexually assaulted for example how to make a police statement, get medical care, or have a forensic examination. The choice of care and options are decided by the individual.

Immediate support at any time of the day or night is also offered to women and women and their children in the Barwon area who have recently experienced or who are leaving a family violence situation and require support.
