24/7 Crisis Support

Our 24-hour crisis service can provide immediate support to individuals have been recently raped or sexually assaulted by calling 1800 MY SUPPORT (1800 697 877).

The crisis response staff can provide support in a number of ways, including:

  • Attending the hospital with the survivor should they wish to undergo forensic or medical examination
  • Attending the police station with the survivor should they wish to make a formal police statement
  • Informing survivors of their rights and options in relation to police and medical services
  • Assisting survivors to connect with the Laurel House day counselling service should they wish to undertake ongoing counselling

The after-hours crisis service is limited to crises only and is not intended to be utilised for general counselling and support.
