Responding to sexual assault – children and young people

Any behaviour of a sexual nature that makes a child or young person feel uncomfortable, frightened, threatened or intimidated is not OK.

For parents and carers, it can be challenging and overwhelming to learn that their child has experienced sexual assault and it can be difficult for them to know what to say and how to respond to their child.

To support parents and carers after their child’s disclosure of sexual assault, we have developed a trauma-informed resource – Responding to Sexual Assault: Children and Young People.

This video highlights ways parents/carers can support their child after disclosure of sexual assault.

The Sexual Assault & Family Violence Centre acknowledges the traditional owners and custodians of the land we stand on. We are committed to working toward creating a community where all people indigenous and non-indigenous are safe, connected and empowered to live well. The Sexual Assault & Family Violence Centre recognises the diverse needs of our community and we ensure our services are inclusive of all children, young people and their families including those who are of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander descent, from culturally and/or linguistically diverse backgrounds, those who identify as LGBTIQ and persons living with disability. We work collaboratively with people and partner organisations who also support our diverse client group. Interpreter and translator services are available to all our clients upon request.
