Training external communities on how to deal with sexual assault and family violence is a vital part of SECASA’s mission.

Sexual Assault Report Anonymously (SARA)

By Jessica Wooley

In 2013 we launched our first phone application called Sexual Assault Report Anonymously (SARA).

The idea for SARA came after a particularly awful crime in Melbourne where a woman named Jill Meagher was stalked, raped and murdered in 2012. Her assailant was on parole at the time of the attack. This man had harassed other women in the same location but these had gone unreported.
