A Belgrave podcaster wants to change the outcomes for sexual and family violence survivors.

Ashleigh Rae is producing the Recovery podcast and building a social media presence around it for women to share their experiences and the road to recovery.

“It’s also a place where I aim to bring to high-calibre experts who offer services to help us rebuild our lives, from body therapists, to legal practitioners and law enforcement,” she said.

“This is an advocacy space for women – not a place to troll or minimalise the daily experiences women endure.

“This is a place where we come together to share, learn and be empowered.”

The project is self-funded.

Ms Rae was not successful in a recent Pick My Project application, but she’s still seeking funding elsewhere.

“It’s a podcast and website where we’re really talking about everything which is not talked about with issues of violence and sexual assault trauma,” she said.

“It’s real and relatable.

“I want to change the outcome for survivors.

“They often don’t get the help that they need.”
