VIC Sex Abuse Support Group Gets $110,000
March 19, 2016
A centre working with child sex abuse survivors has received a $110,000 grant from the Victorian Government.
The government said it was matching the funds remaining from crowd funding efforts that sent survivors to Rome for the evidence of Cardinal George Pell to the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse.
It means the Ballarat Centre Against Sexual Assault will receive more than $200,000 to work with survivors in Ballarat and Western Victoria.
The Ballarat CASA runs the Ballarat Survivors Group, and will work with survivors to determine how to best use the money, including counselling and mental health support.
