The crime of child sexual abuse affects every single one of us. The financial and societal costs are huge and yet it is a crime that can mostly be prevented!
During National Victims of Crime Awareness Week, we are leveraging the theme of ‘Shaping the Future Together’ and doing just that. Here are some ways you can actively participate in shaping a future that sees a reduction in the incidents of child sex abuse and more support for survivors!
SURVEY – April 19th to 25th – CANADA – Have Your Say
We’re getting ready to deliver more services and programs but before we do that, we want your feedback. This is your opportunity to provide us with some insight into what would be valuable for you. Let’s work together to shape a safe and happy future for children and survivors.
This anonymous survey will take you about 5 minutes to complete.

Registration is limited with only 2 spots left. We must have your registration in no later than April 17th.
