It is important to be aware that historically in Queensland, sexual assault services have only been funded by Queensland Health to support women aged 15 years and over. Some services, however, are now providing assistance to men, and many services will know of local organisations or workers who can assist men who have experienced sexual violence. Given that due to funding constraints women’s service may not be able to help directly, we encourage you to enquire at the services listed on the General Counselling Services in Queensland page.

    I’m just wondering what it takes to have an offender/offenders charged with rape and sexual assault. I have now exhausted every legal avenue to have my 2 attackers charged and the head of CIB on the Sunshine Coast in our final conversation only just fell short of Sking me what I was wearing. I complained to the CCC, Licencing and Police in Brisbane about a pathetic investigation in Noosa with still no charges occurring. I am now offering my shocking story to the media to shine a light on our stupid laws that protect rapists. Laws need to be changed , women need to stop feeling shameful and being silent. Change has only occurred for victims of paedophiles and child abuse because victims started talking publicly. is there anyone out there??
