**Important Updates**

 

SAC Brant’s online chat service

 

 
Our brand-new online chat service is now up and running! 

 

This service will be in addition to our crisis & support line. You can reach out for support, information, referrals, ask questions about sexual and/or gendered violence, or just talk with us ❤️

Our chat is going to be available on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from 4pm-8pm. You can access it from your browser on a computer, tablet, or mobile phone. As of right now, it is just available from the main page of our website. This means that if you navigate to another page, your chat will end! This is something we are working on. If you want to continue exploring our page, but not get disconnected from your chat, we suggest opening any link into a new tab. 
 
One more thing, this chat is completely anonymous, as well as encrypted. It doesn’t save ANY of your data, or anything you said in the chat. Please check out the Terms of Use which you can access from the chatbox for more information. If you’ve got more questions, send us an email at sexualassaultcentre@sacbrant.ca
 
We really hope that our new online chat removes some of the barriers to accessing support, which we find SUPER important in these recent times. We’re so excited to start chatting with you! Spread the word!
 

COVID-19 Closures and Returning to Face-to-Face Service

During this time, all SAC staff are currently working remotely. Also, SAC Brant will not be re-opening for regular in-person services in the immediate future. We will continue to provide remote support by by phone, Zoom (video), and by other methods. As we’ve got further updates, we will make sure you get them too!

Thank you for understanding that we are working to ensure all of our community members and our workers’ health and safety at this time.

We are still here for you. Thanks for still being there for us.

Please keep in touch.

What is Sexual Assault?

Sexual assault is any unwanted act of a sexual nature imposed by one person upon another. Forced or coerced intercourse, grabbing, touching or kissing can be defined as sexual assault.

If you or someone you know is a survivor of sexual assault, we can help.

We offer a 24 hour crisis and support line for survivors of sexual violence, as well as friends and family members of survivors. We also offer counselling for survivors of all genders ages 14 and over in a supportive, safe environment as well as in all Brant County high schools, emergency services, accompaniment and support through hospital, police, and court procedures, public education, and community events.

All of SAC Brant’s services are free and confidential.
