Brief Description


Slovenia has 24 safe-houses and maternity homes for women, providing approximately 110 rooms and 330 beds. However, it bears noting that maternity homes fundamentally are not intended for the solving of family violence issues. The exact names of shelters (safe houses and maternity homes) and further information are available in the Resolution on the National Programme on Prevention of Family Violence (2009-2014). Shelters are run mostly by non-governmental organizations and also a few by the Centres for Social Work. The Government is co-financing ten maternity homes, 13 safe-houses and three crisis centres.
