Sexual Assault Helpline

What is the Sexual Assault Helpline?

The Queensland Sexual Assault Helpline offers telephone support and counselling to anyone, women, men and young people, who have been sexually assaulted or abused. It is also for those who are concerned someone they care about might have been assaulted or abused.

Sexual Assault is an unwanted or forced sexual act or behaviour without your informed consent. Sexual Assault and abuse is perpetrated by people in all kinds of settings and against all age groups and genders. Sexual violence can include anything sexual that makes you feel scared or uncomfortable. Sexual violence can involve strangers or people you know, including:

  • Boyfriends, girlfriends, partners, husbands or wives
  • Ex-boyfriends, ex-girlfriends, ex-partners, ex-husbands or ex-wives
  • Carers or paid support workers
  • Parents, guardians or other family members
  • Casual sex partners
  • Friends
  • Other people you live with or see often, whether inside or outside the home
  • Someone you know but aren’t close to, like a neighbour, boss, or friend of a friend

It is never OK for any of these people to force you to do something that you are not comfortable with. Every person has the right to say what happens to their body. For more information about Sexual Assault visit 1800RESPECT

 

Sexual assault is never ok! It is never your fault! It is always a crime!

I wish to sincerely thank you and the entire DVConnect team for their past and present assistance during these past few years of family turmoil. Without such a wonderful service it would be that much harder for women and children.
