Domestic violence devastates families and communities across Europe. Families are meant to be the bedrock of our society. They are a safe environment for children to grow and develop; surrounded by care and love. When the bedrock is fractured, society crumbles.
For this reason, the project EMPOWER - Building Resilience to address Domestic Violence aims to support these families, especially families at-risk of violence, to develop their resilience to prevent domestic violence. The project will adopt a whole-family approach to addressing this issue, by engaging parents as educators and providing a toolkit of learning materials to support all age groups - from young children to senior adults in the family - to build strong, healthy, and positive family relationships.
