Support Groups at BWSS | 2014

BWSS Support Groups meet the needs of women who are or have been abused in their intimate relationships, women survivors of childhood sexual abuse, incest, and adult sexual assault. We design our support services to accommodate the social situations of marginalized women in regards to culture/ethnicity for women of colour or experiences of colonization for Aboriginal women. We also address situations of immigration, refugee experiences, sexual orientation, age, poverty and disabilities.

To sign up for a support group, please call 604-687-1867 (we accept collect calls) during our office hours or email

If you need support outside of BWSS office hours, call Victim Link Helpline at 1-800-563-0808.
