Zig Zag Sexual Assault Support around Brisbane

Zig Zag is very happy to be part of a sexual assault program working in the Inala region. We also still continue to go to Zillmere once a fortnight. Read below for details on both of these locations.

 

Inala Sexual Assault Program


We are pleased to share that in April 2016 we received funding for a partnership program to provide sexual assault services to the Inala and surrounding region. Zig Zag is excited to be a part of this new initiative. We have felt very welcomed by the community and have a keen interest in getting to know the needs and hopes for young women and the broader community in this area.  

The Brisbane Southwest Support Service is a formal partnership between four specialist Sexual Assault Support and Prevention Services to provide free, confidential, culturally appropriate services to women and young women who have experienced sexual violence, and their families in the Brisbane Southwest Region.

The Brisbane Southwest Support Service provides the following support services:

  • Information, support and counselling following any form of sexual violence or sexual abuse;
  • Advocacy and information on reporting to the Police and navigating the legal system, including criminal justice proceedings;
  • Therapeutic support groups and workshops for survivors of sexual violence;
  • Information for supportive parents, families, partners, and allies;
  • Community education and prevention activities; and
  • Professional training for workers / services on best practice in responding to sexual violence.

Zig Zag works with young women aged 12 – 25 years. If you think you would like to see the Zig Zag worker at Inala you can contact Zig Zag on: PHONE: 3843 1823.

Brisbane North Side Counselling and Support

If sexual violence has been present at anytime in your life and you think you might like to talk with someone, then perhaps it would help to meet and have a chat with us.

Zig Zag continues to go to the north side and has appointments at the Zillmere Community Centre once a fortnight on a Monday. If it is easier for you to get to the North side rather than Camp Hill then contact us to make a time for Zillmere.

We work with survivors of sexual violence and support young women aged 12-25 years of age.

Where: Zillmere Community Centre, 54 Handford Road, Zillmere
When: Monday afternoons (fortnightly) from 1pm
