A SeMPRO Support Coordinator (SSC) is a SeMPRO staff member who is appointed to each SeMPRO client as a single point of contact for coordinating appropriate and responsive care. SSCs also provide advice to other Defence personnel seeking guidance on the management and reporting of sexual misconduct.
Anyone who has been affected by an incident of sexual misconduct can choose to disclose to a range of professional personnel, such as: medical staff; Psychologist; Chaplain; Legal Officer or ADFIS officer.
These people are qualified and/or trained to respond to disclosures of sexual assault and form part of the support network to those affected by sexual misconduct/assault.
A Defence member or Defence employee is not prevented from reporting the assault to their State/Territory police or ringing 000 in an emergency.
