Expands the outreach and capacity of SACC, Singapore's only one-stop support centre for survivors of sexual violence and harassment

Fearing blame or disbelief, survivors often find it hard to speak up and get the help they need.
"I really believe that if I had some help then, maybe I would have recovered sooner (....) maybe I still wouldn't be battling it 10 years on." - SACC client
Sexual Assault Care Centre (SACC) continues to be Singapore's only dedicated support centre for survivors of sexual assault. When survivors reach out through our SACC Helpline, WhatsApp, email or walk-in services, we offer gender- and trauma-informed assistance, and help them make informed decisions about next steps.
Since SACC's launch in 2014, the number of sexual assault survivors reaching out to the centre had almost quadrupled. Echoes of the global #metoo campaign and our efforts to continue these conversations in Singapore through community and media engagement resulted in an exponential increase in our numbers - a spike of 79% in the last quarter of 2017 over the previous quarter.
Whether women need help with police procedures, legal advice, or an experienced and compassionate counsellor - SACC is there to help.
Donate to SACC today to pledge your support to end sexual violence in Singapore. We believe survivors, stand behind them and are working systemically to improve support for them.

About the Charity
The Association of Women for Action and Research (AWARE) is Singapore's leading gender equality advocacy organization. AWARE supports and empowers women on an individual basis and seeks to remove all gender-based barriers that prevent individuals in Singapore from developing their potential to the fullest and realizing their personal visions and hopes. It does this in three ways, namely, research and advocacy, education, and providing social services.
In 2016, AWARE won the Charity Governance Award 2016 for the Medium Charities/IPCs category.
The Charity Governance Awards, (CGA), organised by the Charity Council, aim to promote good governance in the charity sector by acknowledging the excelling work of charities, while inspiring others to emulate their best practices.
AWARE qualified as a candidate for the CGA by becoming a winner of the Charity Transparency Awards (CTA). The CTA recognises charities with good disclosure practices.
