Barwon CASA counsellor advocates have specialist knowledge about sexual assault and family violence. The intake team welcomes phone calls from early childhood educators, school well-being staff, parents, friends and family who would like further information about whether to refer a person to Barwon CASA. We are able to provide advice about whether Barwon CASA is an appropriate service based on the trauma experienced and the presenting issues.
Barwon CASA welcomes consultations with other professionals and services in the Barwon region. As specialists in the area of sexual assault and family violence, we can provide resources for professionals working with clients who have disclosed sexual assault or family violence. We can support professionals to understand the gendered nature of sexual assault and family violence and assist services to adopt a trauma sensitive approach when working with clients with a sexual assault and family violence history.
