For the past couple of years Every Woman's Centre has taken a leading role in coordinating Sexual Assault Services on Cape Breton Island. In the early stages we invited both victims of sexual violence and those who provide support services, to take part in a survey looking at what was available, as well as what types of gaps may exist.
This work led to the opportunity to apply for, and receive funding for a demonstration project. During the past 2 years we were fortunate to travel around the island and speak with service providers to get a clear picture of sexual assault services in both urban and rural areas. We brought representatives of over 35 agencies to join a Network of support and we look forward to those collaborations continuing into the future.
Part of the mandate was to also create this website and we look forward to building on this in the months ahead. We invite you to take a look at the pages devoted to Sexual Assault services including our interactive map which helps locate services in each of the 4 counties; we’ll post educational videos; there’s the Cape Breton Sexual Assault Response Team Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/Cape-Breton-Sexual-Assault-Response-Team-1663065670597284/timeline/ ; and future links to other important sites across Nova Scotia. You’ll find the Every Woman’s Centre homepage which outlines programs offered throughout the year, as well as our contact info. We invite you to sign up for our periodic newsletter that will keep you informed of special events; newsletter sign-up mailto: email@example.com
Thanks for stopping by and we look forward to many visits in the future!
