Sexual Assault Support Service (SASS)

Sexual Assault Support Service (SASS)

Sexual Assault Support Service (SASS) is a free and confidential support service for southern Tasmanian people of all ages who have been affected by any form of sexual violence. We also provide Redress Scheme Support Services across Tasmania.

1800 697 877 (1800 MYSUPPORT) – 24/7 Crisis Response

SASS provides a 24 hour crisis response service on 1800 697 877 and can provide information about a range of options, including:

  • accessing counselling and support;
  • having a forensic medical examination and/or medical checkup;
  • accessing emergency contraception;
  • reporting recent or past sexual violence to police; and
  • we can also assist with referrals to other services.

SASS aims to empower people who have been sexually harmed and will always respect your decisions.

We can assist you in understanding your options and offer supports along the way. It all starts with that phone call, seeking help or advice.
