The authors are grateful for the input of a large number of individuals and organisations into this research. Our thanks go in particular to the victim/survivors of sexual offences who were interviewed as part of this evaluation. We are grateful for your participation and admire your courage in sharing your stories. We hope that this evaluation does justice to your experiences.

We are also grateful for the assistance of the Wraparound agencies in providing information and assistance for this project. Without their support and willingness to engage in many meetings to refine the indicators, provide agency data and participate in the project consultations, we would not have been able to complete this evaluation. We are particularly grateful for the time and effort of staff of the Canberra Rape Crisis Centre, the ACT Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions, and Victim Support ACT in helping us to identify victim/survivors to interview as part of this evaluation. We appreciate that this was a lengthy and at times complicated process and often carried out despite the agencies having other pressing agency business.

Finally, we would also like to thank Kym Dossetor, former Research Officer at the Australian Institute of Criminology, who assisted with the project consultations.
