It’s time to talk

19th– 25th October is Stepping Out’s Childhood Sexual Abuse (CSA) Awareness week. This date commemorates the 2-year anniversary of the Commonwealth Government’s ‘National Apology to Victims & Survivors of Institutional Child Sexual Abuse’ shining a much-needed spotlight on an issue that effects 1 in 6 women in Australia.

Stepping Out is an organisation that supports adult female survivors of Childhood Sexual Abuse and helps them to transform their lives.

Our aim this week and every other week is to help more women to tell their stories and start the healing process.


Simply starting a conversation to raise awareness about Childhood Sexual Abuse can help. To become more informed view one of our previous webinars or kick back and read award winning author Rene Michele’s tale of survival.

‘Stepping Out has helped me, without their support through my recovery from childhood sexual abuse I would not be the woman I am today. They have connected me back into a life worth living’.

‘It is well known that early intervention provides better outcomes, we hope to reach survivors earlier and help them to address barriers to a meaningful life’

‘But I am here to tell you, you are not broken, you are not faulty and most of all, you are not alone’.
