Sexual Abuse Help Portal
Do you have questions about the help portal or about its services? Send us an email! Your message will be treated confidentially.
Who is the help portal for?
Talking about sexual abuse can be very stressful. The help portal is there to help people affected by sexual abuse and their families to get easily accessible help and advice. The Sexual Abuse Help Portal supports people who have suffered sexual violence in their childhood or adolescence, as well as family members, professionals and anyone who has questions about the topic or is worried about a child.
Where can you find the right help?
Getting help pays off. Our nationwide database helps you find the right help for you. It lists counselling centres, emergency services as well as therapeutic, medical and legal help services.
How were the services selected?
The services can request to be listed in the Sexual Abuse Help Portal database. Before being entered into the database, they are professionally examined. However, being listed in the database or the mention of the service is not a reflection of the quality of the advice provided by the individuals. As an agency of the federal government, we cannot carry out such an assessment. This means that inclusion in the help portal does not constitute a "certification" of the help service in question, nor a seal of approval of any kind. However, certain minimum requirements apply for services to be included in the database. Find out more about the registration.
