The European Commission has funded the EMPOWER project to support women across Europe who have suffered or are vulnerable to violence, abuse and trafficking; to improve employability and entrepreneurship skills.

Studies have reported that 1 in 4 women across Europe experience domestic violence over their lifetimes and between 6-10% of women suffer domestic violence in a given year and 68% of human trafficking victims are women.

Our goal is to helping women to gain employment and financial independence, a key step towards preventing victims from becoming stuck in circles of violence and abuse.

Partners in Greece, UK, Iceland and Lithuania have come together for EMPOWER to build a new strengths and skills-based training and coaching programme for both vulnerable women and the support workers helping them, to improve the lives of women across Europe.
