The project is seeking to explore the role and support provided by the Sexual Assault Response Team (SART) in Townsville to victim-survivors of sexual assault, with a focus on implications of that support for whether and how victim-survivors navigated the criminal justice system. The project will conduct qualitative one-on-one interviews with victim-survivors who have used SART and the interviews will explore victim-survivors’ experiences of the support provided in relation to legal responses to sexual assault.
