Sexual Assault Centre London

Sexual Assault Centre London provides services to survivors of sexual violence in London and Middlesex County.

Our staff and volunteers create safe spaces for survivors to be believed, supported and counselled so that they can begin to heal. Our services are about re-discovering strength, hope and joy both as individuals and as a community. A critical component of our work is helping women and girls recognize their potential as powerful agents of change – promoting equality, working in partnership and making a difference.

We believe that by working together, honouring difference, valuing diversity, leaning into our discomfort, and challenging ourselves we will achieve our vision of a world without sexual violence.

On behalf of our staff, volunteers and Board, I welcome you to Sexual Assault Centre London.  We provide services to survivors of sexual violence in London and Middlesex County, and are committed to an anti-oppressive, anti-racist feminist perspective.

Women and men who have experienced sexual violence often feel deep shame and self-blame.  Many have suffered in silence because they were afraid of not being believed or that they were responsible for the violation.  Many have used alcohol or drugs to cope. The trauma that they have experienced has profoundly impacted all aspects of their lives.

We create safe spaces for survivors to:

  • Tell their stories in a safe and non-judgmental environment
  • Be believed and supported
  • Begin to heal through counselling, support and intervention
  • Develop healthy coping strategies and resilience
  • Reduce isolation and build relationships with others who have experienced sexual violence
  • Empower themselves to regain control of  their life and experience a sense of connection again

This work is also about helping women and girls recognize and mobilize their potential as powerful agents of change, promoting equality, working in partnership, and making a difference.

It’s about rediscovering strength, hope and joy both individually and collectively.
