Brief Description

The Ministry of Demography, Family, Youth and Social Policy (MDFYSP) has funded the operations of 18 shelters for women victims of violence. Financing is dual in the sense that if the service is contracted as part of the social welfare network, the rates are fixed per capita so that centres/institutions/NGOs providing accommodation for victims of domestic violence are allocated 450 euros per month per beneficiary, while autonomous shelters for women victims of domestic violence are financed through tenders on a three-year term. The MDFYSP has also been funding civil society organisation projects on preventing and combating various forms of domestic violence. These activities comprise counselling centres for victims of violence, providing services enabling the quality integration of victims of violence after leaving a shelter, and in particular programmes intended for victims of violence that are aimed at gaining skills, qualifications and employment, as well as providing support services in the process of finding adequate housing solutions and intermediation in finding accommodation or housing solutions, on which 595,945.95 euros (4,410,000.00 kn) were spent in the period 2014-2018.
