SART: Sexual Assault Response Teams

Supporting a collaborative response to sexual assault

Sexual Assault Response Teams (SART’s) are a result of AASAS community development in five rural Alberta communities towards the standardization of a coordinated sexual assault crisis response to recent sexual assault.

In 2015/2016, these communities are launching their SART’s:

  • Fort McMurray
  • Medicine Hat
  • Lloydminster
  • Grande Prairie
  •  Rocky Mountain House

They join four Alberta cities with established SART’s:

  • Edmonton
  • Red Deer
  • Calgary
  • Lethbridge

Each SART looks slightly different, although key partners are usually similar (health, policing, victim services, counselling, sexual assault centre).  SART’s reflect the unique needs and capacities of the communities they serve.
