About The Sexual Assault & Family Violence Centre

The Sexual Assault and Family Violence Centre is a community based, not-for-profit service, offering free, confidential trauma-informed sexual assault and family violence services across the Barwon, Wimmera and Western Melbourne areas of Victoria.

Our vision is for a community free from family violence and sexual assault, and a society underpinned by the principles of gender equality, social justice and human rights.

Suggested viewing

All participants are encouraged to view Our Watch’s Change the Story video. To end violence against women for good, we need to stop it from happening in the first place. This is called primary prevention. The best way to prevent violence against women is to promote gender equality.


Be ahead of the game – gender equality in sport is proudly supported by Pixeld, Leisure Networks, the Geelong Football Club and Christine Couzens MP.

The Sexual Assault & Family Violence Centre acknowledges the traditional owners and custodians of the land we stand on.
