Welcome to the Queensland Sexual Assault Network (QSAN). QSAN is a state-wide network comprised of 23 non-government specialist sexual assault services and is the peak body for sexual violence prevention and support organisations in Queensland.


Sexual Violence Awareness Month 2020

Sexual Violence Awareness Month is held during October each year to:

  • raise community awareness about sexual violence,
  • promote the support options available to people affected by sexual assault and sexual abuse, and
  • uphold a clear message that sexual violence will not be tolerated in our communities.

The theme for SVAM this year is #WeBelieveYou.

QSAN services contribute to a range of awareness-raising activities and community events occurring across Queensland during Sexual Violence Awareness Month.

If you have been impacted by sexual assault, rape or sexual violence, it’s not your fault. There are many ways for you to get the support you need. Our support services will listen to you and they will believe you. They will work with you in the way that suits you best. You can decide how to address the impacts of what you have experienced. It doesn’t matter how long ago it happened or if you don’t think it was serious enough, if it is impacting you then we are here to help.
