KHCAS supports Sexual Assault Awareness Month and Survey initiative

KAWARTHA-HALIBURTON CHILDREN’S AID SOCIETY SUPPORTS SEXUAL ASSAULT AWARENESS MONTH and the initiative of the Kawartha Sexual Assault Centre.

LAUNCH OF FOUR COUNTY SURVEY FOR SURVIVORS OF SEXUAL VIOLENCE

Sexual Assault Awareness Month is recognized across the Province. The Kawartha-Haliburton Children’s Aid Society supports that, and we support this survey initiative and invite anyone impacted by sexual assault to complete the survey.

On Friday, May 1, 2015, the Kawartha Sexual Assault Centre launched a survey for survivors of sexual violence across the four county region of Peterborough, Northumberland, City of Kawartha Lakes and Haliburton. This survey, as part of a Status of Women Canada needs assessment, asks all survivors of sexual violence to share their experiences of accessing community services in response to the violence they experienced or in the prevention of further sexual violence.

Sexual violence includes experiences such as, childhood sexual abuse, sexual assault, rape, intimate partner sexual violence, sexual harassment, workplace sexual harassment, online sexual cyberbullying, and sex trafficking.

The Kawartha Sexual Assault Centre asks media to launch this survey with us at:
