The SARAC helpline is a powerful service for clients needing someone to talk to. It requires the use of focused listening skills to build rapport with clients, to promote their wellbeing and explore the impact of trauma from sexual violence in a safe environment giving stabilisation.
SARACs face-to-face service is a vital service for our 18+ clients, providing a safe, non-judgemental, and open environment for them to explore and work through their experiences of sexual abuse. Survivors who have accessed this service, have shared their apprehension for being accepted, heard, and most importantly being believed.
Due to the nature of SARACs work, volunteering can be challenging at times, but it is an extremely rewarding experience. SARACs services rely greatly on committed volunteers in order to provide a consistent service to survivors.
