Western Region Centre Against Sexual Assault

  1. About this service

    WestCASA aims to both facilitate the recovery and healing of victim/survivors of sexual assault and work toward the elimination of sexual violence in society. The service vision is for a world where everyone lives free from the fear of sexual violence.


    How can WestCASA Help?

    1. Counselling to help you deal with your feelings about what has happened & any concerns or problems you may have because of the assault. 

    2. Information about common difficulties people experience after an assault and how to manage these.

    3. Information about your legal options.

    4. Assistance with the legal process such as liaising with police, preparing to be a witness and organising support for you in court.

    5. Referrals to doctors who are sensitive to the needs of someone who has been sexually assaulted.

    6. Counsellors who will listen, believe and support you

    WestCASA also provides a 24 hour crisis care service in conjunction with the Victorian Sexual Assault Crisis Line (SACL).
