Support Services

Individual Support

Tzedek provides support to survivors of child sexual abuse throughout Australia. Support is offered to those who have experienced institutional abuse, intrafamlal abuse and abuse from other offenders such as family friends, child to child abuse, or other abuse.

The services offered:

Crisis support for adults and children and non offending family members
Short term support and counselling
Referral to support services
Support with submissions to the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse
Court support
Phone consultations in responding to allegations or disclosures of child sexual abuse for members of the Jewish community members, for professionals and other members of the community.

Group Work

Tzedek runs support groups on a needs basis.

MIRIAM's VOICE

Miriam's voice is the first support group developed by Tzedek.  It is a short term group for female survivors of sexual abuse and female non-offending parents of survivors of sexual abuse. The group evolved out of a need in the Jewish community for a self help group for women who had experienced child sexual abuse, either directly as survivors or as parents of survivors.
