Sexual Assault Support Service Inc (SASS)

Sexual Assault Support Service (SASS) is a free and confidential service for people of all ages who have been affected by any form of sexual violence, and children and young people who are displaying problem sexual behaviour or sexually abusive behaviour. We offer a range of support options including counselling, information provision and advocacy. We also provide information and support to professionals, and deliver training workshops and community education activities.

The 24/7 Crisis Response Service provides 24 hour crisis response and support for survivors of recent sexual assault, and their support persons (including family members, friends, and professionals). Our on-call counsellors can provide information about a range of options, including:

  • Having a forensic medical examination and/or medical checkup
  • Accessing emergency contraception
  • Reporting the crime to police
  • Accessing counselling and support

SASS coordinates forensic medical examinations and police statements, and can assist with referrals to other agencies. The crisis response service is also available for people who are experiencing trauma responses (including high levels of distress or anxiety) as a result of recent or historical sexual assault incidents. The 24 hour contact number for the service is 1800 MYSUPPORT (1800 697 877).
