Conference examines measures to support elderly female victims of domestic abuse
The fourth and final WHOSEFVA conference on 28-29 August in Tallinn will bring together experts to discuss how best to support elderly female victims of abuse. The conference is co-funded by the European Commission under the Daphne programme.
Participants will be able to examine best practices in the prevention of domestic abuse as well as discuss the results and achievements of the project. The second day of the conference will take place in the Estonian Parliament, where in addition to presentations, a public discussion on the topic “Multiagency cooperation against elderly abuse“ will take place.
The aim of the two-year WHOSEFVA project is to increase the capacity of domestic violence organisations to better represent the interests and voices of older female victims of violence in healthcare and healthcare policy.
The conference is in English. Healthcare professionals, social workers, domestic violence support workers and all interested are welcome to attend.
