The impacts of sexual violence are far reaching. At SACE, we appreciate the varied sources of support that impact a person’s healing journey. Empowering supporters is a way of building community capacity to listen, believe, and support the people in our lives who experience sexual violence.

To help with this, once a month SACE hosts a free 2-hour information session for people who are supporting friends or loved ones aged 18 and over through their healing journey. These sessions equip supporters with a strong understanding of trauma impacts, best approaches to providing support, and a familiarity with SACE services and other important resources. These sessions are available to everyone no matter whether you are supporting someone who is a client of SACE, receiving support elsewhere, or someone who is not connected to any formal resources.
