24/7 Sexual Assault Crisis Response Helpline

**COVID-19 Update – our office is currently closed for face-to-face appointments. We are instead providing all of our usual services including counselling over the phone. We are continuing to accept new referrals as usual and our crisis line remains available for anyone who wishes to access it - 1800 697 877**

SASS provides a 24 hour crisis response and information support service on 1800 MYSUPPORT (1800 697 877). This number is state-wide and will automatically direct you to your nearest support service.

In southern Tasmania we can provide information about a range of options, including:

- accessing counselling and support;
- having a forensic medical examination and/or medical checkup;
- accessing emergency contraception;
- reporting recent or past sexual violence to police; and
- we can also assist with referrals to other services.

As an adult calling our crisis support line, you will be given choices as to what support you need. SASS aims to empower people who have been sexually harmed and will always respect your decisions.

We can assist you in understanding your options and offer supports along the way. It all starts with that phone call, seeking help or advice.

In Tasmania, you can choose to make a statement to police at any stage whether the abuse was recent or a long time ago. If you would like SASS to support you in contacting police, or discussing your options further, please contact us.
