One of the most common methods of referrals is from the person who has experienced sexual assault. A person can contact CASACV by calling our Intake and Response Team on 54410430 and request to speak with an intake counsellor / advocate. During this process you will be asked a series of questions, to allow us to understand the assistance needed. This process can take up to 30mins. Alternatively, you can complete the self-referral form below and one of our IRT counsellor / advocates will call you. Please note that CASACV calls from a private phone number.
The forms on this page allow you to easily refer yourself, or a client for our services.
