Brief Description

The provision of shelters for victims of violence is the responsibility of the cantons. Most cantons have women's shelters, but the provision varies from canton to canton. In order to assess whether there were enough shelters for victims of violence and their children and whether their funding was secure in the long term, the Conference of Cantonal Directors of Social Affairs and the Federal Office for Women's Affairs  published a situation and needs analysis in May 2015. This provides the cantons with a baseline for regional assessments.
