Circles of Support and Accountability (CoSA) is a community of volunteers who form a circle of friendship around an individual who had been imprisoned for sexual offences. We assist them to successfully reintegrate into the community and not re-offend.

Community safety is key

No one can

Our Goal Is:

No More Victims


1. Every person is created equal and worthy of the right to respect and dignity.
2. Human rights (as identified in U. N. Declarations) apply to everyone.

3. “Community” is basic to human societies and essential for wholesome living.

  • Community may be geographic, blood (family), ethnic  or “common goals”. 

4. Human well being is based on physical, social, psychological, mental and spiritual needs being met.
5. Positive relationships, communication, understanding and nurture lead to wholesome living.
6. Healing, reconciliation, restoration, transformation, and forgiveness are essential to resolve conflict, misunderstanding, alienation and/or violence.
7. People, communities and societies are capable of change (for the better or for the worse)
8. Altruism underlies healthy volunteer action.

We offer support, model, and encourage a law-abiding life style. In the process, we hold each other accountable for our behaviour.
