History of SASH

Since 1984, we have worked alongside thousands of women and children seeking healing from rape and sexual abuse; first as Rape Crisis and now as SASH-Nelson.


Our focus is on support and healing. We believe women and children have a right to live in a society free from sexual abuse and violence. We aim to assist women to discover their feelings, identify options and decide for themselves what to do.


We are a not-for-profit organisation which relies heavily on grants, donations and private funding. We are grateful for every dollar donated to SASH.
