The Women's Support Network (WSN) of York Region has recently launched a new initiative for survivors and those at risk of sexual violence and human trafficking. 

WSN is a sexual violence and rape crisis service centre situated in York Region dedicated to providing free, confidential, and non-judgmental services to survivors and those at risk of sexual violence and/or human trafficking for the purposes of sexual exploitation who identify as a woman, femme, 2Spirit, or gender non-conforming. 

Femme-identifying, non-binary, cis- and trans-women are welcomed and encouraged to access our virtual drop in support offered every Tuesday from 4:00 - 8:00 PM EST. 

Drop in support involves accessible, supportive, feminist, client-centered, and client-focused 45-minute counselling sessions for individuals in need of support. Sessions are at no cost to the client and client's will be seen on a first-come, first-serve basis. 

With no appointments necessary, these sessions endeavour to provide support and referrals. 

To gain access to this resource, please email Daisy Pyman, and let Daisy know which Tuesday you are interested in attending. Upon reaching out, you will receive a zoom link which will allow you admittance to the virtual drop in space. Upon entering the virtual space, clients will complete a brief intake with Daisy's colleague, Claudia and be seen by the counsellor within the stated time slots.

Please note: These sessions are for people who are not currently receiving ongoing support.  As well, because this is a drop in space, individuals cannot access the service consecutive weeks.  Furthermore, though we try to see every client in a timely manner, there may be wait times and we cannot guarantee that every individual will be seen.
