Stay Safe project: preventing and responding to sexual violence against women with psycho-social disabilities
Final conference – Thursday 17 March 2022 – ONLINE EVENT
How to protect women with psycho-social disabilities against gender-based violence, both online and offline? How to help professionals and informal carers recognise risks of sexual harassment to which women with psycho-social disabilities are exposed to, and support them? How to empower women themselves? The Stay Safe project hasdeveloped a training model for women concerned, based on creative drama techniques and gaming elements. It also produced a training model for professionals and carers, as well as awareness raising material.
Concluding two years of intense cooperation, the conference organised online on the 17th March (9.30 – 12.30) will offer the opportunity to discover concretely the Stay Safe tools, learn about the outcome of the piloting in five countries (Greece, Italy, Lithuania, Portugal, Spain), and discuss the state of play of the fight against gender-based violence against vulnerable women with representatives of institutions and key stakeholders.
