At the Victoria Sexual Assault Centre (VSAC), we recognize the resourcefulness of people facing multiple, intersecting barriers. We understand that folks who live with disabilities spend more time and energy navigating an ableist society. We do not want accessing services at VSAC to be an additional set of barriers for folks with disabilities. We want VSAC to be a welcoming space for all survivors, and to do so, we realized we needed to review our accessibility practices.
Using the Radical Access Mapping Project’s accessibility audit as our guide, we reviewed our practices and the structure of our Centre, and found there are some things we are doing well, and others that needed improving. Making our Centre a more accessible space is very important, and so we have made it a priority to update our Centre by end of summer 2017. In the meantime, we have made this page to provide detailed descriptions of our facilities, using the Radical Access Mapping disability/illness categories.
Please let us know if we have misrepresented our accessibility information, missed important information, or if you have any questions or concerns about accessibility. This is an ongoing project and we will incorporate community feedback throughout.
