Victim/Partner Contact

As clients are referred to the Men’s or Women’s Counselling Programs, specialized counsellors make contact with the victim of assault and/or the current partner of the client involved in the group counselling program.  

The victim or partner will be provided an opportunity to share their experiences with someone who will listen and support them in a way that reflects an understanding of the complexities of abuse and increases safety.

 Services are voluntary in nature and are generally provided over the phone and include risk assessment, safety planning, information sharing and referrals to ongoing community supports.
