It is important to be aware that historically in Queensland, sexual assault services have only been funded by Queensland Health to support women aged 15 years and over. Some services, however, are now providing assistance to men, and many services will know of local organisations or workers who can assist men who have experienced sexual violence. Given that due to funding constraints women’s service may not be able to help directly, we encourage you to enquire at the services listed on the General Counselling Services in Queensland page.
