Stepping Out Program (SOP) is a non-profit community based organisation with a 30 year history working with women who are adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse (CSA).

These days, Stepping Out is a specialist agency providing a valuable service to women and men through support, case management, information, group work, counselling, advocacy and referral.

The agency’s contemporary focus is placed on establishing and providing therapeutic support through the delivery of case management and case coordination services. This focus emphasises trauma informed care and practise, a solution based focus, building on client strengths and a client centred approach as best practice.

Stepping Out is also a partner in a consortium led by WAGEC for case management services as part of the broader Going Home Staying Home reforms.
