NET-CARE: Networking and Care for Refugee and Migrant Women

The new project of Generation 2.0 for Rights, Equality & Diversity, “NET-CARE: Networking and Care for Refugee and Migrant Women“, started in August 2019, is funded by the Rights, Equality and Citizenship (REC) Programme of the European Union and is implemented in three EU countries: Greece, Spain and Italy. The project aims to increase the capacity of health, judicial and social care to tackle SGBV affecting refugees and asylum seekers; to create and strengthen networks of services and institutions working on SGBV to support migrant and refugees; and to increase competences of cultural mediators on SGBV to reach migrants & refugees victims of violence and ensure access to specialist services.

In December 2019 and January 2020, three focus groups were held with the participation of representatives from immigrant communities, organizations and institutions. Our goal was to produce a needs analysis on potential gaps in service delivery to meet the needs of victims of sexual and gender-based violence amongst migrant and refugee population. The research results set an insight on the development of the training course on health, legal and social aspects, addressing cultural mediators, as well as on the implementation of emergency response by the aforementioned professionals and the development of hand-outs and education material for migrants and refugees to facilitate access to services.
