Aim of the project: Stable and high-quality services and assistance to victims of violence has been set up to support and assist through subsidies and grants, and for this reason, it is necessary to implement this project to maintain services for victims in the region.
Through the implementation of the project and its activities, we plan to maintain the quality of providing specialized counselling services to victims of violence, and at the same time, we plan to move these specialized services to other districts of the Banská Bystrica Region.
The project will also benefit from an effective network of entities and experts who can help victims in a targeted, accurate and immediate manner and direct them to further professional support and assistance.
Result: The expected result is the preservation, and expansion of services provided to victims of domestic violence, the provision of educational services aimed at counselling in the field of crisis intervention and raising the awareness of professionals and the public about domestic and gender-based violence. At the same time, we will intensify work with children, especially in the special-pedagogical, medical-pedagogical area, or another within the consulting activity.
