Local organisations invited to apply for sexual assault disclosure training

With the disturbing rise in cases of sexual assault and family violence across Melbourne’s Western suburbs and Australia as a whole, the Western Region Centre Against Sexual Assault (WestCASA) is inviting local organisations to learn about creating a safe and respectful environment for everyone and reduce sexual assault and family violence.

Fostering an environment of education that values the well-being of every individual is key to reducing this violence.

Australia is one year into a 10 year National Plan to end violence against women and children which highlights how all parts of society, including workplaces, schools, and community-based organisations can do their part to achieve the shared goal of ending gender-based violence in Australia.

WestCASA is offering engaging and informative training sessions designed to empower teams with the knowledge and skills to contribute to increased safety for everyone.

WestCASA now invites schools, sporting clubs, businesses and local associations to get involved and educate their members of all ages and ethnicities on:

  • Consent
  • What defines sexual assault
  • How to safely respond to the disclosure of sexual assault.

Our training covers essential topics in an inclusive tailored manner as which will make learning enlightening and enjoyable.

We understand the sensitivity of the subject, so we’ve crafted sessions that are approachable yet impactful.”

Organisations interested in exploring training options are invited to email training@westcasa.org.au or call (03) 9216 0444 to find out more.
