About the Project
There are three key elements to the Empower Women project:
- Work with young people at Shpresa to develop their understanding of gender-based violence and of healthy relationships
- Group work with women at Shpresa who have experienced violence to raise awareness of violence against women and girls, to help prevent violence against women and girls, and to promote healthy relationships
- Casework for women experiencing violence and abuse, provided by Solace via one-to-one advice, information, practical and emotional support and advocacy.
The Empower Women Toolkit was developed to share the learning from this project, which includes resources to support community groups, mainstream providers of services for women and children, those making decisions about the provision of services for women and girls and funders commissioners, and full evaluation report.
