Advocacy and Accompaniments

24 Hour Support SAVIS of Halton

Advocacy:

SAVIS works to increase public awareness of sexual harassment and violence, especially in societies that tolerate one-sided, patriarchal power. Staying silent will only perpetuate the cycle of abuse affecting women and children.

 

SAVIS staff and volunteers are available to provide advocacy and accompaniments to the following places for incidents of sexual violence:

  • Criminal court
  • Nina’s Place
  • Police stations

 

We cannot speak on your behalf however, we will: 

  • Ensure you are treated in a humane way
  • Offer information to demystify the legal and medical process
  • Provide you with emotional support.

 

To request advocacy or an accompaniment please call 905-825-3622 or 905-875-1555.
