Sexual violence work
Sexual violence is a traumatic, insecure and difficult experience. Untreated, sexual violence can cause long-term harm in everyday life and relationships. That’s why it’s good to deal with the matter together with a safe and professional adult.
We offer support and help to girls and young women aged 13-29 who have experienced sexual violence. The service is free, confidential and low-threshold individual and group professional support.
Those who have experienced sexual violence can contact the sexual violence worker Anna Korhonen,
