About Us

North and North West Tasmanian Sexual Assault Support Service, known as Laurel House is a not-for-profit, sexual assault support service assisting survivors across the North and North West of Tasmania.

The Laurel House team understand the challenges people face as a result of sexually assault and how these can influence all aspects of daily life.  However, survivors can and do reclaim their lives after sexual assault.

Laurel House provides a range of different services to survivors and support people, including face-to-face and phone counselling, a 24-hour crisis service and outreach to rural areas.  Our therapeutic counselling services support all ages and genders and we also provide support through the forensic, medical and legal process, as well as referral and information services.

Our service is confidential and free to survivors of sexual violence, their families and support people.

Laurel House offers community education, professional training and debriefing to professionals working with survivors.
