Conference discusses support to victims of violence against women

FRA will present its survey on gender based violence against women at the 15th Women Against Violence Europe conference, “To Live free from Violence – A Human Right for Women and their Children or a Postcode Lottery?”, in Sofia from 10 to 12 October.

This year’s conference theme is on the sustainability of state support for women’s services and shelters and protection against violence against women. In its presentation, FRA will focus on the objectives, methodology and contents of the survey. FRA will also share some preliminary findings from its survey on women’s awareness of organisations and specialised victim support services for victims of violence in the EU.
