Acacia attends to all crisis calls that come from local emergency departments including Port and South Hedland Police Stations, Hedland Victims Support and Hedland Health Campus. When a survivor of sexual assault/abuse engages with these three departments, they will be informed of the crisis service Acacia provides and they will be invited to have a crisis support worker attend.
Clients can receive this support throughout the police interviewing, forensic examinations and court processes. Acacia Support Service continues to provide the following services to the community in Port Hedland:
- Therapeutic counselling for survivors and their families of Port Hedland
- Community education in Protective Behaviours for the Port Hedland community – we can customise a program for community groups and school education programs
- Training of sexual assault/abuse awareness programs to other service providers in Port Hedland.
- Counselling support and education for males and females over the age of 13 who have been a victim of sexual or physical abuse.
