Welcome to We-Speak.
We-Speak is for anyone who identifies as a victim, a survivor, a person who has experienced sexual violence of any kind, or for someone who is supporting another person. The purpose of We-Speak is to collect stories of struggle, strength, and healing to foster a community of hope for survivors. We believe that stories are powerful and can build understanding, cultivate empathy, and ultimately create change. Every story matters.
We want to hear your story in your own words. This may be a story of struggle, of pain, of emotion, of healing, of change, of growth. No matter what, this is your story, and you can tell it however you want. We are here to listen. Together we can create a wave of change.
We-Speak can only publish stories from those who are over 18. We also cannot publish stories related to child sexual abuse, current or historic. Any such stories which are submitted, will not be published, and may require us to report any child protection concern to appropriate authorities, as per the Children First National Guidance for the Protection and Welfare of Children 2017.
If you have been impacted by the stories on We-Speak, or by an experience in your life or in the life of someone close to you, please call the Freephone 24-Hour National Helpline on 1800 77 8888
