HELP has provided professional and specialised support services to sexual abuse/sexual assault survivors since 1982. We work to empower women and children recovering from the effects of sexual abuse and educate the community on preventing sexual abuse in the future. All services are provided by professionally trained therapists/ counsellors who are skilled to deal with the range of issues and emotions invoked by sexual abuse or sexual assault.

Through HELP’s wrap around services, thousands of women, children, young people and men are supported each year.  HELP is committed to contributing to ending sexual violence.

Thank you for supporting HELP to provide services for survivors 


Best wishes,
