The Sexual Assault Support Centre (SASC) is a non-profit charity and community based organization established in 1983. Our purpose is to provide survivor directed support services by women, to women, who have experienced sexual violence. We believe women, listen to them and empower them to find their own path to healing. We offer non-judgmental support and consider women experts of their own experiences. We strive to increase public awareness and offer training and workshops on the issues and effects of violence against women. We work as a collective of women who support each other based on 31 years experience of working with women and girls in the community. Our work is informed by the principles of a feminist, anti-oppression framework, and our vision is a society free of all forms of violence.
