Counselling Notes Protect – Sexual Assault
The Counselling Notes Protect (“CNP”) service is a free legal service being delivered by Women’s Legal Service in partnership with Legal Aid Queensland. CNP provides advice, assistance and representation under a new Queensland law which protects the counselling records of victims of sexual assault or alleged sexual assault.
|The CNP service will provide advice and representation in court proceedings to protect your counselling notes from being made available to the court. We assist women in the following circumstances:|
|When you are a victim or alleged victim of a sexual assault offence and you have had counselling; and|
|There may be civil or criminal court proceedings about your sexual assault or alleged sexual assault.|
|The CNP service is also available to not for profit counselling services (e.g. sexual violence or domestic violence prevention services) whose notes may be determined to be protected communications under the new legislation.|
