Survivors of Sexual Violence say the number one reason they come forward is they don’t want it to happen to anyone else.

We must work together to STOP Sexual Violence.

Understanding Sexual Assault and Consent

What is sexual assault ?
Sexual assault is a term used to describe a range of sex crimes committed against a person. It is any unwanted or forced sex act or behaviour that has happened without a person's consent.
Sexual assault may include:
Rape (sexual intercourse without consent)
Indecent assault (unwanted sexual touching)
Acts of indecency (Exposure)
Sexual assault is a violent crime and it is not always committed by strangers. Often the offender is known to the victim, and it can occur within relationships or marriage. It can be a terrifying experience that may have long term effects on the victim regardless of their age, gender, status, culture, ability or sexuality.

What is consent ?
A person consents to sexual activity if they do it actively, freely, voluntarily and consciously without being pressured into it.
