Have you been
a victim of sexual assault
or rape?

Our SAFE worker can support you
and it is a free and confidential service.

Rape and sexual assault
happen far more often
than statistics indicate.

And it happens in all communities
and cultures.

It is irrelevant what you were wearing,

the perpetrators.

You do NOT

have to report

to access our services

To talk in confidence call
