Let's work together against violence

Projects dedicated to prevent violence and to help the victims of violence constitute a substantial part of the psychosocial services in our city. As a crosscultural institution for immigrant women in violent relationships we rely on the collaboration with organisations aiming at similar goals. The complex situation of immigrant women demands a comprehensive network of support and counselling services. Exchange of information within the network provides our staff members with an overview of the broad variety of psychosocial counselling services all over Berlin. The counsellers use this knowledge in their everyday work and can make appropriate referrals to further institutions. Furthermore collaboration and coalition-building is essential to expand services for immigrant women and to enforce common claims. The women in need, however, are in the focus of network and collaboration. We work with anti-violence projects, immigrant women's organisations, police domestic violence sections, lawyers and universities of applied sciences to build collaborative relationships and to develop advocacy strategies. Furthermore we provide mutual technical assistance and referral of clients.

Our program includes the following topics:

  • Anti-Gewalt
  • Interkulturalität
  • Aufenthalts-, Familien- und Sozialrecht
  • Frauengesundheit
  • Gewalt und Pädagogik
  • Frauen- und Kinderrechte allgemein

The network has already published several flyers:

  • Guides in different languages (listing women's projects and institutions offering counselling for women, their services, addresses and accessibility)
  • Berlin Violence Prevention
  • Forced marriages
