Victim survivors of sexual assault are encouraged to contact Women’s Legal Services’ new free legal advice service for victim survivors of sexual assault to discuss legal issues around telling their story or being identified publicly.
The service is staffed by female lawyers, who specialise in legal issues arising from violence against women. Lawyers can advise individual women on how the current law might affect them.
Call (03) 8622 0600 (Metropolitan Melbourne) or 1800 133 302 (regional Victoria).
