Young people

Sexual assault impacts many Australians, including young people. There are specialist services in Queensland who provide support to young people. Zig Zag Young Women's Resource Centre provides support to young women (aged 12–25) who are survivors of sexual violence. Their service includes counselling, advocacy, support, referral and some accommodation.

ReachOut is another online resource, that has information for young people about sexual assault and safe sex, safe relationships and other key issues that affect young people.

Other QSAN sexual assault services are able to support young people who are survivors of sexual violence. Please refer to our services page to see which agency is best to assist you. For general advice and support of what support is best for you or the person you are supporting, please contact the Statewide Sexual assault helpline on 1800 010 120.

Raising Children also has some good information for both teenagers and parents about sexual assault.
