  • Be listened to, believed and supported
  • Be treated with respect, dignity and understanding
  • Deal with your own life, in your own way and at your own pace
  • Choose who you tell and when
  • Confidentiality and Privacy
  • Receive practical information including reporting, legal and medical options
  • Interpreter support and disability support

Individual support and counselling is offered at Women’s House in Woolloongabba, in Inala through Brisbane Southwest Support & Sexual Violence Prevention Service in the Northside of Brisbane.

BRISSC telephone support line provides support, advocacy, information and referral to women (including transgender and cisgender women) who have experienced sexual violence. We also offer support, information and referrals to friends and family members of survivors, male survivors and the wider community over the phone.

Face to face support requires self-referral by booking over the phone by the person wanting an appointment.

Group Support

BRISSC provides both open and closed support and social action groups for survivors of sexual violence regularly. Groups are a great opportunity to connect with other survivors of sexual violence. Groups are advertised via this page, our email lists and through our Facebook page.

Community Education and Training

We facilitate a range of educational packages for tertiary education institutions, workplaces, government, and non-government organisations on working with survivors, sexual violence, and advocating for survivors.

Some educational and training activities we are funded to provide, and others may incur a non-profit fee. Packages can be tailored for particular groups. If you would like to discuss educational opportunities further, please contact us.
