Are you a counselling service?

No, we are not a counselling service. We are a network of sector experts, led by passionate victim-survivors who want to empower others using our living expertise.

Is your resource free?

Our resource is free! Reporting a perpetrator is a public service… the provision of information about how to do that and what’s expected of you is the bare minimum.

Where do you get your information?

Our resource is uniquely informed by both lived experience and sector experts. Guidance is created by combining a diversity of lived experience from victims and frontline services across the country with official police and legal policies, to reflect what happens in practice (not just on paper).

Some information and language varies between states – while we try, we cannot account for how every difference between police stations and DPPs may manifest.

Will you give me the right advice?

We can’t be sure to give you the right advice, because the right advice is different for everyone. What we can do is give you correct and honest information, so that you can be informed and prepared to choose what’s right for you.
