The system for prevention of abuse and support for victims of abuse in the Skawina municipality is not sufficiently effective. The measures taken are not properly coordinated, and classes and materials on prevention are not suited to the needs of the addressees. The system does not cover people who have not enrolled in the Blue Card (Niebieska Karta) procedure.
The project entails measures to form a partnership of local institutions and organizations to combat violence and provide support for violence victims. Under the project, a series of workshops will be conducted for professionals. Workshops on prevention will be conducted for children and young people, and there will be workshops for parents and women who are subjected to violence. The workshops will develop the skills needed to cope with and counter violence, and consultations will also be held on the system of support for groups at risk of violence and discrimination in the Skawina Municipality. The results of the consultations will lead to proposals for modification of the municipal Social Problem Strategy (Strategia Rozwiązywania Problemów Społecznych) and the Domestic Violence Prevention and Domestic Violence Victim Protection Scheme (Program Przeciwdziałania Przemocy w Rodzinie oraz Ochrony Ofiar Przemocy w Rodzinie). The project will also entail a local social campaign showing violence mechanisms and the system of support for violence victims.
The project will make the system for prevention of violennce and support for victims of violence more effective, primarily for children and women in the Skawina Municipality. The project will help to increase awareness among the community in the Skawina Municipality of the problem of abuse and how to cope with it. A major effect will be a handbook (bridge map – mapa mostów) containing information about the forms of support available in the Skawina Municipality. The Bridge Map will include the solutions developed in the project.
