AWARE’s Sexual Assault Care Centre (SACC) is launching an open support group for women who have experienced sexual assault. Participants can attend any and as many sessions as they choose. If you attend a session, you are encouraged to stay until the session ends to avoid disruption.
Through a combination of writing, art and the sharing of stories, survivors come together to draw support from women facing similar struggles. They also hope for participants to gain awareness on the impact of sexual assault, their strengths and ideas about ways of coping. Details of the other services which SACC can offer and which may be able to help you further will be provided.
The support group aims to bring together those who have had similar experiences in a safe, supportive environment. For this reason, we ask that participants meet the following criteria to be eligible:
Age: 16 years old and above
Type of assault: All forms of of sexual assault, penetrative and non-penetrative
Venue: AWARE Centre, 5 Dover Crescent, #01-22, Singapore 130005
Duration: There will be eight bi-weekly (once every two weeks) sessions. Each session is 2 hours long.
Dates: Every other Tuesday from 24th April to 31st July
(24 Apr, 8 May, 22 May, 5 June, 19 June, 3 July, 17 July, 31 July)

* Unfortunately, we are not able to open up the support group to men at this time. SACC can provide information and support for men to the best of our ability, but we are regretfully not equipped to provide the same level of support as we do for women. If you are male and have been sexually assaulted, do contact us for more information on the services we have available for you.
