I’ve been sexually assaulted in the past.

SACE support services are available to anyone impacted by sexual assault or abuse, even if it happened a long time ago.

I know someone who has been sexually assaulted.

If someone discloses to you that they have been sexually assaulted or abused, the most important thing you can do is to listen, believe them, and support them in whatever they choose to do.

Find information on a number of topics.

What is sexual assault?

Sexual assault is any unwanted sexual contact without voluntary consent. As this definition of sexual assault indicates, consent must be voluntary. Consent must also be ongoing, active, and specific to each person and action involved. Consent must come from someone capable of consenting.

85% of the time people are sexually assaulted by someone that they know. Being sexually assaulted by someone that you know may feel confusing. You are not alone. What happened to you is not your fault.


What is sexual harassment?

Just like any other form of sexual violence, sexual harassment has the potential to be traumatizing for the people who experience it.


What is child sexual abuse?

Child sexual abuse includes inviting or exposing a child to sexual contact, activity, or behaviour. A child is typically understood to be any individual under the age of 16.
