Beneficiaries, target groups and motivation of the choice
VICTIMS OF VIOLENCE
Victims of violence in childhood (including adults) and children at risk of becoming victims of violence.
There are some gaps in delivering social service to this target in some EU countries; secondly, there is a lack of knowledge and ability of families & teachers in detecting the existence of violent behaviours.
Families are the first “educational environment” for children. Parents must be given the right knowledge and tools to be able to detect the existence of abuses and violence against their sons, also within the family itself.
TEACHERS / EDUCATION STAFF
Schools must be the second place (in terms of importance) for a good education of children with relation to violence detection and prevention (school are also often a place where violence occurs)
PUBLIC & PRIVATE STAKEHOLDERS
Public (Medical and Paramedical Staff, Social Assistants) and private (NGOs and Associations) professionals is the third target of the SAVE project, for a stronger cooperation and task scheduling between the public system and private institutions / association, in a logic of complementarity
