Notes:  This 2002 research reports the issues, findings and strategies from audits of the access and equity practices of Australian services against sexual assault in relation to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women and children, and women and children from culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) communities. It documents effective strategies used by the services in relation to access and equity; and makes recommendations to governments about the needs of women and children. It follows the National Association of Services Against Sexual Violence (NASASV) National Data Collection project completed in 2000, involving 54 services. Child sexual assault was the most frequently reported form of assault; rape was the second most likely reported form. Some 11.5% of the recorded number of service users were born overseas; and 4% were identified as Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders. This was double the rate in the population (2%). The findings indicate policy issues with regard to service delivery, with 17 recommendations made.
