This year’s Awareness Raising Campaign, launched on 5th September, is a simple message to survivors of sexual violence that they are not alone, and that talking can help the feelings to fade. If you, or someone you know has been affected, please call our National 24 hour Helpline number 1800 77 8888. There is always someone at the end of the line.
