Gippsland Centre Against Sexual Assault (Gippsland CASA) is a community-based, non-profit organisation. We have provided a specialist support service across the entire Gippsland Region since 1986. We are a free and confidential service; available to anyone in Gippsland who has ever been impacted by sexual assault.
We offer individual counselling and support to children and adults who have experienced, or been impacted by, sexual assault. We provide outreach services to several places across the Gippsland region to support community access to our individual counselling, family services, and to engage the Gippsland community in our prevention and community development initiatives.
We also offer a therapeutic response to children and families where a child or young person has engaged in problematic or sexually abusive behaviours.
A key part of our work is to advocate for change to reduce the impact of sexual assault on individuals and communities, and to raise awareness and understanding about the incidence and impact of sexual assault. We do this work with the ultimate aim of preventing sexual and other forms of violence from occurring.
