#SAFE (#7233)

When I got my bill from Rogers the other day, they included an insert about the Assaulted Women’s Helpline. From your cell phone, you can now dial #SAFE (that’s #-7-2-3-3) to call the helpline (which is probably easier to remember than their regular phone numbers).

I read a media release from the AWHL’s website, and it appears that you can also dial this number from other carriers—that is, you can dial #SAFE from a Bell Mobility, Rogers, Fido, or Telus cell phone.

For more information, see the AWHL’s press release that I linked to above, or, for information about the organization, go to their main website. Aside from the #SAFE number you can call from your cell phone, the helpline’s numbers are:

  • In the GTA: (416) 863-0511, or (416) 863-7868 for TTY
  • Outside of the GTA: 1-866-863-0511, or 1-866-863-7868 for TTY
Since I’m on the subject, if you’re interested in helping the Assaulted Women’s Helpline, you can go here, for suggestions on how you can become involved.
