Gender Based Violence Navigation Advocate, Northwestern Ontario Women’s Centre
This service is for self-identified women who have experienced or are experiencing physical and/or sexual violence or coercive control by a partner, family member or acquaintance, especially where the violence or threat of violence is ongoing.
- Ensuring that women who are experiencing or at high risk of gender based violence have contiguous access to ongoing and appropriate support and referrals.
- Ensuring safety planning and a collaborative risk assessment has been completed and is up to date, if not done elsewhere
- Coordination with VAW service providers to ensure that critical information is shared
The Gender Based Violence Navigator is intended to enhance the effectiveness of existing VAW response, not duplicate or replace it.
