Women’s Health Matters wants to better understand women’s experiences seeking help in the ACT, and their views about the services and support that they received.
We understand that women seeking help following a sexual assault have diverse circumstances and needs, meaning that there is no single best response that will be suitable for all women. Rather, there needs to be a range of responses available.
The findings from this research will better help us understand the ways in which ACT women seek help following a sexual assault, the services and supports they access, as well as when and why they choose to do it in such a way. We will use this research to advocate to improve responses in the ACT for women seeking help following a sexual assault.
