Delivering a safe and professional service supporting our clients' transition from victims to survivors
Our service was established in 1982, originally known as Hutt Rape Counselling Network, changing our name to Hutt Valley Sexual Abuse Support and Healing in 2017. Our service covers Lower Hutt and Upper Hutt communities and supports women, men and children affected by sexual abuse, rape, or sexual harm.
Professionalism - We take pride in providing individualised, high quality services
Respect - We treat everyone with dignity
Inclusiveness - We value tikanga and different cultures, perspectives and experiences
Manaakitanga - We support and care for victims
Empathy - We seek to understand victims' needs so we can respond appropriately
Our latest strategic plan for the period 2020 - 2023 is here.
The HV SASH board is made up of volunteers who are committed to ensuring anyone in the Hutt Valley needing support for any sort of sexual abuse, rape, or sexual harm assault has access to free professional, caring services.
