Avalon Unable to Receive New Counselling Requests
For the first time in the 23 years Avalon Sexual Assault Centre has offered counselling, the Centre is unable to receive new requests for this service. We are first completing our current caseload, and then directing all therapeutic counselling service to those on the waitlist. During this period, we will not be adding new requests to the waitlist.
Once we have assessed the needs of those on the waitlist, we will be able to determine when we will receive new requests for counselling, and we will update our community.
