The network website provides various helpful resources such as a European work with perpetrator programme database, guidelines to develop standards and best practice papers on documentation and evaluation for responsible perpetrator work. 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. Our Facebook page, Twitter account, and LinkedIn company page and group 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 and undertakes research and innovation in the field of the work with people who perpetrate violence in close relationships. The WWP Project (2006) laid the basis for the foundation of the network in 2009 by developing the network's guidelines. Subsequently, the IMPACT Project (2013/14) developed a free-to-use toolkit for good evaluation practice.

Networking events gather practitioners in the area of perpetrator work and victim support, researchers, as well as policy makers, in order to strengthen personal connections and discuss important issues. Additionally, WWP EN arranges study visits giving practitioners the opportunity to experience the practical work of programmes in other European countries. Online and face-to-face trainings guarantee state-of-the-art knowledge-exchange. For more information on WWP EN events, simply follow this link.
Campaigning and Lobbying
WWP EN joined the European Coalition to end violence against women and girls, a unique coalition of more than 25 European networks and NGOs dedicated to social justice and equality. Read or download the statement from 8 March 2017, the International Women’s Day, here.
Additionally, we launched our annual perpetrator work campaign "Responsible Together" in 2018 and will continue to engage members in campaigning around different topics. Find out more here.
