Who Are We?

Rosie’s Place is a community based sexual assault counselling service for children, young people and their non-offending family members.



  • No one ever, under any circumstance, deserves to be abused.
  • Sexual and physical assault is a crime. The perpetrator is totally responsible for these criminal behaviours.
  • Acts of sexual and physical abuse are a most blatant abuse of power, betrayal and a violation of spirit.
  • Sexual assault and domestic violence involve the total violation of women, children and young people’s rights to self determination.



Children and young people have a right to live in an environment that is free from violence and abuse and a right to access all services available within their community. Rosie’s Place is committed to working to support children, young people and families in obtaining safety, and providing resources to increase their safety
