Did you know that 4 out 5 people who are exploited go undetected?

83% of them are women and girls. They are left with trauma, isolation and hopelessness because they often can’t afford and access support.

About the Founder of HerSpace 

In 2009, Emily Hanscamp visited Mumbai and was confronted by the exploitation and trauma faced by the women there. She saw that above everything else, psychological and emotional anxieties were the most significant challenges for women who were trying to leave situations of exploitation. 

Emily founded HerSpace to support women experiencing exploitation. It was originally founded to raise fund for survivors of sexual exploitation in India, then Emily realised how bad the problem was in Australia. It is now focused on creating a safe healing space for girls and women in Australia.
