Founded in 2014, we now unite 68 members from 34 European countries. Our members include perpetrator programmes, researchers, as well as victim support services. We believe that gender-based violence is a violation of women's human rights and aim to create a gender equitable world by supporting member organisations in their work with those who choose to use violence in intimate partnerships, mostly men.
The overall mission of WWP EN is to prevent violence in close relationships as a gender-based phenomenon and to foster gender equality. More specifically, the mission of WWP EN is to improve the safety of women and their children and others at risk from violence in close relationships, through the promotion of effective work with those who perpetrate this violence, mainly men.
