About Us

Oak Centre is a welcoming, child-friendly environment where children and youth who have experienced abuse, sexual assault, or witnessed a crime can share their story with police or social workers. At Oak Centre, the police officers and social workers are specially trained to listen to children. The staff at Oak Centre, including the Child and Youth Advocate, work with these agencies to make sure your child’s experience is as comfortable as possible, and to make sure your child and you are supported throughout the interview process and on an ongoing basis.

Oak Centre is a partnership made up of the following agencies:

The goal of this partnership is to provide a coordinated response to crimes against children and youth and to support child and youth witnesses and their families. Partners come to Oak Centre to interview the child or youth, and can continue to use Oak Centre to meet with the child or youth and their families any time after the interview.
