EROC Australia calls for national 1800 hotline for survivors of sexual assault at universities

NEWS - 17 May 2017

EROC Australia is joining with sexual assault advocate, Nina Funnell, and the National Union of Students (NUS) to call for the establishment of a National 1800 24/7 Hotline to be run by Rape and Domestic Violence Services Australia (RDVSA), who are the peak body in sexual assault telephone counselling. We believe that Universities Australia should be responsible for funding this initiative. RDVSA has estimated that a national 24/7 service would cost approximately $1.3 million per annum.

'University reputation and income should not take priority over the wellbeing and safety of students, and processes that retraumatise rape victims or deter reporting are only protecting and enabling offenders.

As one victim from Wollongong University said: "Make no mistake, I consider the events of my sexual assault and this university's response to be equally despicable. There is a shocking correlation between someone not listening to you say 'stop' and an organisation not listening to you scream 'help'."'
