Making Rights Reality Launch

The Making Rights Reality project was launched on Friday 24th February 2012 at 10.00 at the Multicultural Hub in Elizabeth Street.  This project brings together SECASA, The Federation of Community Legal Services and Springvale Monash Community Legal Service.  Making Rights Reality is a two year pilot aimed at making it easier for victims of sexual assault with a cognitive impairment or communication difficulties to report sexual assault by providing them with intensive, ongoing support.
This project has received funding from a number of philanthropic trusts including the William Buckland Foundation, Portland House Foundation, Reichstein Foundation and Victorian Women's Trust. The Department of Human Services has also provided some funding.
The project will commence on 1st March 2012 at SECASA.  Mallee Sexual Assault Centre in Mildura will be the rural pilot site.
