The Counseling Center for Victims of Domestic Violence
The Counseling Center for Victims of Domestic Violence in Varaždin was established as a part of the project “Let’s lend a hand of support for victims of domestic violence” in december 2019. The project “Let’s lend a hand of support for victims of domestic violence” aims to provide a comprehensive non-institutional counseling service for victims of domestic violence, which includes the provision of free legal, social and psychosocial assistance and support to victims of domestic violence by lawyers, psychologists and social workers. A multidisciplinary approach to victims of domestic violence in one place enables the provision of appropriate and timely information on available services, legal measures, health and social services. Psychological support seeks to empower the victim, and also provides assistance in finding employment and housing, which contributes to facilitating recovery from violence, reducing secondary victimization and trauma, and at the same time raising the level of quality of life.
