COUNSELLING

Saffron Centre recognizes that effective therapy looks not only at the surface of the problem, but the underlying individual, intrapersonal, familial, social, and cultural issues. We work at providing outstanding service and care to victims of:

  • Recent or historical sexual assault and sexual abuse

  • Sexual violence including sexual exploitation

  • Childhood sexual assault and/or abuse

  • PTSD as a result of sexual trauma

Counselling services are also provided to caregivers and supporters of those who've experienced sexual assault, sexual abuse, or sexual violence.

 

PUBLIC EDUCATION

Our Public Education program provides educational and informative presentations for children starting in kindergarten up to Grade 12. We also provide university, parent and caregiver, and professional presentations. Our goal is to prevent sexual violence through community involvement.

POLICE AND COURT SUPPORT

The goal of this program is to provide support to those that are wanting to engage in the judicial process. We offer support in reporting to police, court preparation and accompaniment. Information and assistance is also available for applying for Financial Benefits and Restitution and writing Victim Impact Statements.

Sometimes when you're in a dark place, you think you have been buried but you have been planted.
