Regina and Area Sexual Assault Centre (RSAC) is offering education sessions for body rub establishment (BRE) workers. There are many factors that greatly increase workers' risk for physical and sexual violence and also reduce workers' ability to seek out support for the impacts of this violence.
Our goal is to provide confidential, non-judgmental support to anyone who has experienced, or is at risk of experiencing, sexual violence. These sessions are available to any worker engaged in face-to-face adult services, regardless of whether the person is applying for a license, as a way of ensuring everyone has information they can use to work in safer ways and connect them with places that can support their health and safety.
Confidentiality and safety are our priorities. We do not share information unless we have permission or there is a risk of immediate and serious harm. If you are applying for a license, we share only the information that is needed for the application and we do not store personal information once the session is complete.
If you have questions or concerns, please contact our co-ordinator, who will work with you to find a solution. You can contact us confidentially by phone, by email or through our contact form found here.
