Sexual assault is any behaviour of a sexual nature that makes someone feel uncomfortable, frightened, intimidated or threatened. It is sexual behaviour that someone has not consented to, where another person uses physical or emotional force or manipulation against them. It can include anything from sexual harassment through to life-threatening rape. Sexual assault is a crime and an abuse of power. Sexual assault is never the fault or responsibility of the victim/survivor.
Making Rights Reality is a program at the South Eastern Centre Against Sexual Assault (SECASA) that gives extra help to adults who have been sexually assaulted and who have an intellectual disability or Acquired Brain Injury, or use aids to communicate.
Provides legal advice and assistance to all victim/survivors of sexual assault, non-offending family members and any other person affected by the assault, other than the offender. We offer a unique service which works closely with counsellors and provides legal advice in familiar surroundings for victims.
