WE GO! Women Economic-independence & Growth Opportunity

The main objective of the “WE GO! Women Economicindependence & Growth Opportunity” Project (acronym WE GO!) is to strengthen support services for women victims of domestic violence in Europe, with a particular regard to training and advisory services that shelters/women’s centres offer to these victims. It focuses on the capacity building of trainers and officers of these centres and the development of new methods/responses to address the lack of economic alternatives for women victims. Thanks to WE GO!, centres will become more responsive to economic needs of victims (often a secondary focus following legal support), who will be able to exit situation of violence as a result of being empowered.

Specific objectives:

  • To enhance amongst practitioners crossborder cooperation of support services targeting women victims of violence, identifying and exchanging good practices from at least 8 European countries that foster victims’ economic empowerment;
  • To enhance the practitioners’ understanding and skills by proposingmodels/protocols of support paths that will help victims in gaining economic independence.

Expected results

  • 200 women involved in training activities during the whole project lifetime;
  • 35-50 anti-violence centres operators involved in training activities;
  • 50 professionals involved in comparative analysis and exchange activities;
  • 100 policy makers/institutional representatives reached;
  • 1,000 stakeholders informed about the project’s results.
