Here’s what to expect

At first, you will hear a pre-recorded message and then a counsellor will answer your call. Sometimes you may have to wait a short time for the next available counsellor. You can choose to be anonymous.

The counsellor will ask you your reason for calling and any concerns you have around your safety. You may be given a few different options depending on your needs, including counselling over the phone, information, general advice and referrals to other services. 

You can call our Helpline whether you have a current experience, historical experience or suspected experience of sexual assault. We are here to support you.

Talking to someone about what I went through as a kid wasn't easy. It took me decades to open up to someone and that person ended up being a stranger at DVConnect. Talking to someone and get referred to MARS Australia (Men Affected by Rape and Sexual Abuse) has helped a lot.
