What Guides Our Work

Our work is built on over 40 years of dedication and passion for creating a world free from violence.

Our Mission

The Victoria Sexual Assault Centre is a feminist organization committed to ending sexualized violence through healing, education, and prevention. We are dedicated to supporting women and all trans survivors of sexual assault and childhood sexual abuse, through advocacy, counselling, and empowerment.

Our Values

As a feminist agency, we value:

• Communicating in a clear, confidential, caring and honest manner, demonstrating respect, accessibility and recognition of all our diversity

• We strive to support the empowerment of each person’s knowledge of self and right to dignity.

• We strive to create a safe and accessible environment where people are supported in healing from sexualized violence.

• Social justice and equity for all

• Enacting an anti-oppressive practice that addresses societal and systemic barriers and our positions of power and privilege

• Creating transparency and accountability with the community through sharing our policies and practices
