It happened when I was a child

Skip to main content

If you were sexually assaulted when you were a child, it was not your fault.

You can speak to our specialist trauma counsellors for assistance, no matter how long ago it happened. Call 1800 211 028.

If you were assaulted in an institution (like church or a children's home) you may be able to access payment through the National Redress Scheme.

Assistance can include counselling, a direct personal response and apology, and a compensation payment.
