A central principle of our work at the European Network for Work with Perpetrators of Domestic Violence (WWP EN) has always been the need for attention to the safety of victims/survivors (women and children) in our programmes. This is reflected in the Daphne projects we worked on before the network existed, as well as in our focus on the Istanbul Convention.
As part of responsible perpetrator work, collaboration with women's services is fundamental, as we also stress in our guidelines on setting up perpetrator programme standards. Accordingly, the working group on collaboration with women's services not only works on hearing what our members are already doing in their countries, but also works towards developing closer and better ties with specialised support services for women.
Below, you can find more information on the working group's activities and the reports they published.
