The network website provides helpful resources such as a European domestic violence perpetrator programme database, guidelines to develop gender-sensitive and survivor-safety-centred programmes, manuals on addressing sexualised violence or digital violence, and expert papers on issues such as starting a domestic violence perpetrator programme, working with culturally diverse groups and much more. Our Communication Manager assembles a quarterly newsletter to distribute information on conferences, interesting research and other useful tools, as well as the latest developments within the network. You can sign up for the newsletter here. Our Facebook page, Twitter account, Instagram account and LinkedIn company page ensure that we are close to the general public to further the image of perpetrator work, show the network's feminist orientation and launch campaigns.
The network promotes innovations and undertakes research in the field of intimate partner violence perpetrator work. A special focus is on outcome measurement of European domestic violence perpetrator programmes and promoting safe and effective work. With the IMPACT Outcome Monitoring Toolkit, WWP EN offers a tool to assess changes in perpetrators' behaviours and their (ex-)partners experiences before, during and after a programme.

Our events gather practitioners in the area of perpetrator work and victim support, researchers, as well as policymakers, in order to strengthen personal connections and discuss important issues. Additionally, WWP EN offers in-person and digital study visits giving network members the opportunity to experience the practical work of programmes in other European countries, as well as taking a deep dive into specific topics. Online and face-to-face training guarantees state-of-the-art knowledge-exchange. For more information on WWP EN events, simply follow this link.
Campaigning and Lobbying
In 2018, we launched our first annual perpetrator work campaign called "Responsible Together" and continue uniting members in campaigning around different topics. Over the years, we have raised awareness about perpetrator work, sexualised violence, digital violence, culturally sensitive perpetrator programmes, early intimate partner violence, adolscent and child-to-parent violence and abuse (CAPVA). Find out more here.
