The Kawartha Sexual Assault Centre (KSAC) provides healing, safety, and support to those affected by sexual violence and harm, and aims to end sexual violence through prevention education within our communities.

In Peterborough, Kawartha Lakes, Haliburton, and Northumberland, we offer crisis support, advocacy and accompaniment, individual counselling, group counselling, workshops, and prevention education. We work with local agencies to provide responsive healing supports and prevention education events.

We are a feminist, not-for-profit, charitable organization dedicated to supporting those affected by sexual violence and harm. We work with people of all genders aged 16+ who have experienced any form of sexual violence or harm, whether recent or historic. This can include (but is not limited to) gender-based sexual violence, childhood sexual abuse, non-contact sexual abuse, sexual exploitation, workplace sexual harassment, other forms of sexual harassment, and all forms of sexual assault.
