WeGo! builds the capacity of anti-violence centres across Europe to provide better services to female victims of intimate partner violence. The final project report will be presented at the conclusive event in the European Parliament, featuring recommendations addressed to national and European policy makers.

Based on peer-learning and exchange of best practices, the WeGo! project helps anti-violence centres to support women in gaining economic independence. Thanks to the WeGo! project, the anti-violence centres will be able to better address women’s economic needs, offering them the opportunity to exit violent relationships.

The project partners developed a toolkit containing innovative methodologies and training programmes for women empowerment, including social entrepreneurship as a means to achieve economic independence.
