Watch these videos on ‘Child safeguarding in women’s shelters, the realization of safety for children’

September 28, 2022

Women’s shelters are one of the most crucial, specialised support services for women survivors of gender-based violence and their children. The shelter must be a safe place for the mothers and their children.

Project SafeShelter

The European project SafeShelter, started in 2021 and financed by the European Commission, aims to improve the protection and safety and well-being of children during their stay in a shelter. Within this project, 4 short videos have been developed, each focusing on a different theme. They clearly show how safety can be realized for children in the shelter and what this means for the children, the mothers and the professionals working in the shelters.


All videos in 4 different languages (English, French, German and Spanish) are also available on the EFJCA YouTube channel.
