SASSL Survivor Support Circle Community Feedback Survey
Last year, SASSL began running primarily peer-led survivor support circles as part of our regular programming. Our main goal in holding peer circles was to provide a safer space where survivors felt comfortable speaking about their experiences and were able to form connections with other survivors. These circles were meant to promote and build solidarity, safety, and security amoungst survivors and their respective communities. This year, with your support and feedback, we aim to further develop and improve support circles by incorporating and prioritizing the needs of our community and constituents. Our overall theme this year for all circles will be RECLAIM and RECLAMATION. Topics will include discussions of self and collective/ community care, reclaiming space and body, and Indigenous and Black solidarity and survivorship. These spaces will aim to centre POC, Indigenous, and genderqueer and trans survivors. In order to better meet the needs of our community, we are seeking your feedback on what these spaces should and need to look like.
Thank you kindly for your contributions and support - please feel free to fill out as many or as little of the questions as you see fit.

What does a safer space look like for your community? (Ex. Closing the space so only specific communities are in attendance, ASL interpreters in attendance, hosting off-campus etc.)
Describe the space you hold your meetings for survivors in. What makes it supportive for survivors? What, if any, feedback have you received from participants about the space?
A. What strategies of facilitation do you feel work best? (arts and/or discussion based, panels, bringing in an outside facilitator etc.) B. How often do you use outside facilitators? How long does this programming typically last (Ex. One session versus several sessions)? What type of programs/ topics do you usually bring in outside facilitation for?
How do you support folks that have diverse access needs (Ex. child care on-site, transportation coverage, providing food etc.)
How much emphasis do you place on there being a professional in the room? What types of services do think are required in terms of follow- up and aftercare outside of the space (Please name agencies or organizations you believe are helpful) ?
