Connect with other young women who have experienced sexual violence at some time in their lives.
Zig Zag continues to go to the north side and has appointments at the Zillmere Community Centre once a fortnight on a Monday. If it is easier for you to get to the North side rather than Camp Hill then contact us to make a time for Zillmere.
Royal Commission to investigate Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse.
Whilst this Commission started in January 2013, Zig Zag is aware that it is still an ongoing process. As a result, young women may hear/see things in the media that get them thinking about their own experiences. Young women may still also be considering if they wish to contribute to it at all. If you are a young woman who wants to talk with someone about the Commission and something that it connects to in your life, remember you are very welcome to talk with a Zig Zag worker.
Zig Zag Young Women’s Resource Centre Inc. is a community based not-for-profit organisation in Brisbane that provides a number of services to young women and the wider community. Services include counselling and support to young women who have experienced sexual assault and medium term supported housing to young women who are homeless.
Zig Zag also provides community education and professional training on issues relating to young women who are affected by homelessness and/or sexual assault. Zig Zag produces a number of information resources for young women, the community and human services workers and professionals.
'The Right to Choose' released in 2010,
is a community sector report on
effective responses to sexual violence in QLD.
