The Gender-based Violence & Survivor Support Case Managers at Western University work closely to support survivors of gender-based and sexual violence. This support is available regardless of if you were subjected to gender-based violence on- or off-campus, or before you came to Western. The Case Manager will listen and, with your consent, connect you to resources within the University and the community, explain reporting options, assist with safety planning and navigate academic and other accommodations. At no point, will you be required or pressured to follow a specific path.

The Gender-based Violence & Survivor Support Case Managers are located in the 3114-3127 office suite in Thames Hall.

To connect or set up an appointment email support@uwo.ca.
