Daphne III Programme Announced

Daphne III is an EC funding programme, the general objective of which is to contribute to the protection of children, young people and women against all forms of violence and to attain a high level of health protection, well-being and social cohesion. These general objectives will contribute to the development of Community policies, in particular those related to public health, human rights and gender equality, as well as actions aimed at protection of children's rights, and the fight against trafficking in human beings and sexual exploitation.

The programme's specific objective is to contribute to the prevention of, and the fight against, all forms of violence occurring in the public or the private domain against children, young people and women, including sexual exploitation and trafficking in human beings, by taking preventive measures and by providing support and protection for victims and groups at risk.

While your organisation may not be in a position itself to apply for funding, either by reason of ineligibility or lack of resources, you might know of another organisation which might wish to apply.

Please note that Cosc has no role to play in applications or decisions on funding. All queries should be addressed to the Daphne secretariat. Contact details available on their web-site
