The Sexual Violence Legal Support Service is a component of The Journey Project, which is an ongoing collaboration between Public Legal Information Association of NL (PLIAN) and the Newfoundland and Labrador Sexual Assault Crisis and Prevention Centre (NLSACPC) which aims to enhance supports and responses for survivors of sexual violence in Newfoundland and Labrador within the justice system.
This program consists of two key services:
Available to people of any gender aged 16 or over who have experienced sexual violence and are currently living in NL, or if they are currently living outside NL but experienced sexual violence in NL.
The service launches on June 19th, 2018 and is available Monday-Friday, 9am-3:30pm.
The service will be available anywhere in the province by toll-free telephone and e-mail, and in person in the St. John’s area. The team will travel to other regions of the province for face-to-face support whenever possible.
Contact the Legal Support Navigators toll-free at 1-833-722-2805 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. If individuals need support outside the hours of the service, contact the Sexual Assault Crisis, Support and Information Line at 1-800-726-2743.
