Acacia Support Service Port Hedland

08 Apr, 2015

Acacia Support Service Port Hedland continues to deliver specialised sexual assault and abuse intervention to the community of Port Hedland by supporting men, women and children 13 years and older whose lives have been impacted by sexual assault and/or abuse.

All crisis calls that come from local emergency departments are attended to by Acacia, including Port and South Hedland Police Stations, Hedland Victims Support and Hedland Health Campus. When a survivor of sexual assault engages with these departments, they will be informed of the crisis service Acacia Support Service gives and will be invited to have a crisis support worker attend.

Acacia Support Service also provides the following services to the community of Port Hedland:
  • Therapeutic counselling for survivors and their families of Port Hedland.
  • Community education in Protective Behaviours for the community of Port Hedland – we can custom a program for community groups and school education programs.
  • Training of sexual assault/abuse awareness programs to other service providers of Port Hedland.

Acacia is a non-profit community organisation funded by Sexual Assault Resource Centre (SARC) and is managed by a dedicated group of people. The centre employs a professionally qualified counsellor who has extensive experience in the area of sexual assault trauma.
