  1. DVD 'Travellers and Roma Speak Out on Domestic and Sexual Violence'

 

DVD ‘Travellers & Roma Speak Out on Domestic and Sexual Violence’ and Good Practice Guidelines for Services Working with Traveller Women Experiencing Domestic Abuse’

 

Pavee Point’s Violence against Women (VAW) Programme has recently launched a DVD ‘Travellers & Roma Speak Out on Domestic and Sexual Violence’. The DVD is a training resource for Traveller organisations and service providers to further develop awareness of domestic and sexual violence and the key barriers and issues that many Traveller and Roma women face in dealing with an abusive relationship.  The DVD makes a number of recommendations on how to address these issues. It is designed to be used a part of a series of training workshops and is divided into self-contained sections for ease of use.

The VAW Programme has also launched its ‘Good Practice Guidelines for Services Working with Traveller Women Experiencing Domestic Abuse’ which provides a number of recommendations to ensure inclusive provision for Travellers in gender-based violence services.

The DVD and Good Practice Guidelines were funded by Cosc under the Awareness Raising Grant Scheme relating to domestic, sexual and gender-based violence.
