Women’s support centres
If you are a victim of violence against women, we invite you to contact a women’s support centre. Our best advisers are here to help you. You are welcome with children and you can stay anonymous. The service is free of charge around the clock.
We offer you
- initial crisis counselling. We will listen to you, believe in and support you, and tell you what help you can get;
- counselling to help you cope with what happened. We will assess your security risks, draw up an action plan, explain your rights and help you communicate with other authorities;
- psychological counselling. We will support your emotional wellbeing and future coping;
- legal advice. We will give you initial legal advice, help you draft the necessary documents and support you in court;
- secure temporary accommodation. If you cannot stay in your current place of residence and there is no other safe place, you and your children can stay with us.
