This study seeks to explore service provision to victims of gender-based violence (GBV) in Belgium, Greece, Italy, and Spain during and after Covid-19.
The purpose is to describe:
● the state of the art of services for GBV survivors after and during the covid-19 pandemic, with special attention to services for children
● the Public administration and CSO response to the new challenges
● the needs detected by survivors of GBV
It was anticipated that the knowledge generated from this inquiry would afford new insights and a needs and gap analysis meant to inform the development of guidelines for holistic assistance to GBV survivors and their children.
The paper describes the current needs and gaps in caring for GBV survivors and their children that can be addressed through dedicated guidelines and training.
