Victim Services Wellington (VSW) believes every victim has the right to heal from a crime or tragic circumstance. Our services create opportunities to heal, foster hope and to promote a safer and healthier community.
VSW has been in operation since 1997. Our volunteers are trained extensively in communication, crisis intervention, traumatic stress and victim’s issues. Working in cooperation with the Police, Fire and other emergency services within Guelph and Wellington County, we ensure our community’s needs are met 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
VSW provides support, referrals, safety planning, advocacy and education services that are designed with a victim centred approach. We accept referrals from community agencies and/or self-referrals. If you are a victim and wish not to report to police we respect that and will still provide support.
Our on-scene assistance and referrals may include such incidents as:
