Last week, heads of shelters and centers from 10 regions of Ukraine came to the constituent meeting in Lviv whose object was to train and share experiences in providing services to victims of violence.
In this year, Rivne , Lviv, Odessa, Vinnitsa and Khmelnytsky regions joined the project “Equal Access to the Help of Victims of Violence against Women”.

The efforts of managers and specialists of the institutions that care for victims in the regions are aimed at providing quality services. Our project helps to provide such services to all those who need them regardless of lifestyle, diseases, marginalization, etc. Available services for everyone who needs them – a reality that can be achieved by changing the discriminatory position, training of specialists, continuous monitoring of the quality of service delivery, ” – tells Julia Tsarevska, Project Manager.
