Newfoundland and Labrador Sexual Assault Crisis and Prevention Centre, St. John’s

The goal of this project is to diversify and update the organization’s training program for volunteers on the 24-Hour Crisis, Support, and Information Line. The project will engage stakeholders and deepen community partnerships in order to develop training modules on how best to support survivors of sexual violence who are members of Aboriginal/First Nations, Elderly communities, and 2SLGBTQ+ communities. These modules will take an informed, culturally-sensitive approach and help volunteers create a more supportive and accessible service for women from diverse backgrounds.

Grant amount: $20,000
