Working towards a safer Gold Coast Community

The Gold Coast Centre Against Sexual Violence is a specialist Sexual Violence intervention and prevention service, providing counselling to women who have been raped and/or sexually assaulted at any time in their lives as well as prevention education to the broader Gold Coast community.

It is a free confidential service run by women for women. We aim to provide a safe, supportive, woman-centred environment, in which sexual assault survivors can become aware of their own strengths and gain confidence and control of their lives.

Qualified and experienced professional workers are employed from a variety of backgrounds including psychology, social/behavioural science and social work.
