    Sexual assault in any institution can be deeply traumatising. Survivors often suffer many invisible injuries including depression, anxiety, flashbacks, PTSD, suicidal ideation and many more emotional and psychological challenges.

    These injuries can be more debilitating than physical injuries and stop you living your life to the fullest.

    Claiming compensation is not just important for survivors to receive support and justice, it’s essential in ensuring these predators are held accountable for their actions.

    With compensation you can receive financial resources to cover:

    • Costs associated with medical treatment
    • Counselling, psychologist and psychiatric support
    • Loss of income
    • Home support services
    • And other costs and damages
