We also have ruby project drop in every Tuesday between 10am and 1pm. Feel free to stop in at any point during this time for support or advocacy.

We are aware that travel expenses and childcare are barriers for women to access support, let us know if this is an issue and we can help with these costs.

Information for workers and referrals

Regardless of immigration status or whether a woman has access to public finds, we offer culturally sensitive face to face support for up to 10 sessions with the same worker and we can provide a female interpreter if that is needed. Let us know when you refer if the woman would prefer an interpreter and we can book it in time for the first meeting to ensure she feels as comfortable as possible. We can also provide support at the premises of another agency if the woman prefers and there is a suitable room available.

We also have an independent sexual violence advocacy worker available who works specifically with asylum and refugee women on practical issues.

We are aware that travel expenses and childcare are barriers for women to access support, let us know if this is an issue and we can help with these costs.

Workers can refer women who have disclosed or who show signs of experiences of any form of sexual violence. It is important that we have the woman’s consent for a referral and that you explain our service so that she understands what she is giving her permission for.

Referrals can be made through the helpline on 08 088 00 00 14 or email us.
