Preventing Prisoner Rape Project

The ‘Preventing Prisoner Rape Project‘ is a national project here in Australia aiming to:  raise awareness about the issue of rape in prisons; reach out and support prison rape survivors; support those workers both inside and outside prisons who are trying to deal with this issue of sexual violence in detention; and bring about appropriate law reform and changes to prison administration in order to prevent prisoner rape. While our key area of concern relates to men’s and women’s prisons, we are also concerned about sexual violence in juvenile justice centres, secure mental health facilities, and immigration detention centres. We are currently seeking practitioners who work with women survivors of sexual violence to assist us in creating a support package for women survivors of prisoner rape.
