About us

Rosebank is free and confidential. We are in Liverpool (South West Sydney) and work with families from Liverpool, Fairfield and Campbelltown areas.

We are one of the oldest sexual abuse services in NSW and were established in 1985. Our expertise, experience and specialised service has grown over these years with a strong focus on building trust, and breaking down the barriers created by sexual abuse. We create a safe and non-judgemental space where children and young people can shape for themselves the way they are supported in their healing process.

Children and young people who have experienced the trauma of sexual abuse should be able to access specialised support when they choose – and when they are ready and want it.

Rosebank offers counselling, group work, advocacy and support and works closely with other services to aid the wellbeing of Sydney’s children, young people and the families who love them. We actively work to raise awareness about child sexual abuse and the vision of a community free of harm.

We work with children under 10 who display problematic and harmful sexual behaviours. Counsellors support families to set boundaries and build safety by understanding the behaviour and strengthening attachments.

Safe and Secure Always

A child or young person should feel safe and secure before they begin counselling – that’s the most important foundation for therapeutic work. It’s only then that they can start to heal through therapy.

We work closely with other services including schools,  surrounding families to ensure we all work together. This brings  consistency and reduces confusion. For example, if a young person does not feel safe at school, Rosebank can advocate with them and develop a plan with the school to help them engage in their learning again.

Family members and carers are so important for the healing but they often feel out of their depth and need reassurance. We work with non-offending family members and carers to build the skills and confidence to provide a safe, supportive home.

I am what I choose to become.”
