The aim of the project is to create an innovative system of working with an entire family which is endangered by domestic violence (DV). The main principle is to work separately with the perpetrator, the adult victim of DV and with the child. Three pillars shall create a safe bridge through the storm of the parents’ split due to DV.

To achieve these goals, we strive, within the project, to:

  1. establish a Centre providing complex specialized help to children endangered by DV
  2. prepare methodological materials for work with families endangered by DV;
  3. create a professional platform for working with an entire family endangered by DV;
  4. create a professional study about the consequences of DV on a child’s psychosocial development
  5. increase public awareness of DV

These tools will make the system of working with entire families endangered by DV more efficient. As a consequence it will reduce the current and future incidence of DV.
