This project has been funded by the Australian Government Department of Social Services (DSS) to develop and deliver educational resources and training across Tasmania. It assists Tasmanian clinicians and disability support workers to better support people with a disability who have experienced sexual assault.
The comprehensive toolkit has been developed to create awareness and educate the workforce to respond to disclosures of sexual assault in a trauma-informed way. The way in which disclosures are responded to can make a real difference to the experience of survivors, their families and carers. It is important for them to know that help is available.
