Brussels Centre for Care after Sexual Violence to be expanded

Brussels Centre for Care after Sexual Violence to be expanded

One of Belgium’s six Centres for Care after Sexual Violence (ZSG) is to be expanded. The centre in Brussels is to be made six times larger and once the work has been completed it will work together with a greater number of Local Police Services to provide help and assistance to the victims of sexual violence. Work to expand the centre will start soon and should be completed during the spring of next year. 

The Brussels ZSG is housed in the UMC Sint-Pieter Hospital in the Marollen area of Brussels City Centre. The centre is open 24 hours a day 7 days a week. 

It offers help and support to people that have been the victims of sexual violence. In the four years since it opened the Brussel ZSG has helped over 2,000 people that had suffered sexual violence. 

However, an increase in the number of people reporting sexual violence means that the centre is in urgent need of expansion. The extension to the Brussels Centre for Care after Sexual Violence will be housed in a building next to the UMC Sint-Pieter Hospital.

The five other Centres for Care after Sexual Violence are in Ghent, Leuven, Antwerp, Charleroi and Liège.
