Support and assistance for 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. There are also other QSAN Services who are able to support young people who are survivors of sexual violence.
