Sexual Assault Care Centre
About Campaignends 12 Dec 2017, 12 AM
Sexual assault can happen to anyone.
Fearing blame or disbelief, victims 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)
AWARE's Sexual Assault Care Centre (SACC) is Singapore's only specialised service for women who face sexual assault. Our counsellors, lawyers, befrienders and social workers provide empowering, supportive assistance to help clients in their recovery.
Whether women need help with police procedures, legal advice, or an experienced and compassionate counsellor - SACC is there to help.
"I did not have the knowledge, experience, or (....) the self-assurance to proceed but the fact that I did, with the emotional and professional support of AWARE, is the very reason that today I can face life at eye level again." (SACC client)
In 2013, 192 women contacted us - 45% more than the year before. This year we have already received 124 calls.

"Today I'm crying because I'm proud of myself but that day I was crying because I thought I had lost everything." (SACC client)
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.
