A collaboration of agencies providing services to women who are experiencing violence.

COVID-19 update: We are still providing services virtually, by email, phone, and video conference if desired.

Who we are.
Connecting Women with Scarborough Services (CWSS), a project of Tides Canada Shared Platform, is a partnership of community agencies working together to provide a coordinated approach to address the issue of violence against women. Our mandate is to establish an effective coordination of services and provide community outreach. Our goal is to be responsive to the needs of women survivors of violence and the community agencies that provide services to them, by improving accessibility of services for women survivors and women experiencing abuse.
What we do.
CWSS provides information to women at our rotating clinics. We use space in existing community hubs in Scarborough, so that our services are accessible to women throughout Scarborough. At these clinics, intake workers meet with women at the clinic, informs them about gender based violence services and connects them to the services chosen by the client. Women experiencing violence are welcome to drop into our clinics or can call our number and make an appointment or receive information over the phone.
