Invitation to participate in the Saskatchewan Sexual Violence Action Plan Research Focus Group


My name is Patience Umereweneza and I am the Project Coordinator for Sexual Assault Services of Saskatchewan. We are a provincial membership organization for agencies that support survivors of sexual violence.

We are conducting a 3 year project to create a provincial action plan that will guide service delivery for survivors of sexual violence. As part of this initiative, we are writing to invite you to participate in a research project in partnership with Community-University Institute for Social Research at the University of Saskatchewan to gain a better understanding of the existing strengths and potential gaps in service provision as it relates to sexual violence provision across the province of Saskatchewan. We would like to hear from front line service providers on how we can improve services and supports for survivors of sexual violence.

We are recruiting service providers in North Battleford to participate in a focus group on May 23, 2018 at 1:00 pm.

To participate, please contact Amber Stewart at Battlefords & Area Sexual Assault Counselling.
