Advocacy and Accompaniment

The SASC provides accompaniment and advocacy support services for people of all genders who have experienced sexualized violence. We understand that navigating multiple institutional systems (medical, legal, academic) after experiencing sexual violence can be stressful and overwhelming. 

You don’t have to do it alone.

If you are trying to deal with multiple issues related to academic concessions, reporting to the Independent Investigations Office or to the police, or accessing health services, we can support you by attending appointments with you or through writing support letters for academic concessions or workplace accommodations. We can help connect you with other on and off campus resources, such as:

  • Referrals for counselling services at UBC or in the community
  • Connecting with the Sexual Assault Service at UBC Urgent Care or at Vancouver General Hospital
  • Finding a family doctor or a health clinic for confidential HIV and/or STI testing
  • Applying for the Crime Victim Assistance Program
  • Connecting with a legal aid office, legal clinic or lawyer
  • UBC specific services and resources
