Daphne call - Action grants to support national or transnational projects on multi-agency and multi-disciplinary cooperation to respond to violence against women and/or children, and on tackling underreporting JUST/2015/RDAP/AG/MULT & RPRT Closed!


The aim of the call is to contribute to supporting and protecting women and children victims of  violence by encouraging multi-agency and multi-disciplinary  cooperation, and to bring about more frequent reporting of such violence.

In particular, the priorities of this call for proposals cover two strands:

  • to  encourage  victims  and  witnesses to report  violence  against  women  and/or children to the relevant  authorities  and  institutions,  thus  ensuring  their  access  to the  support  they  are  entitled  to  receive,  taking  account  of  and  signposting  existing mechanisms  such  as  child  and  women's  helplines,  women's  refuges,  interagency  and multidisciplinary children's houses, etc; and /or
  • to develop  and  implement multi-sectoral  and  multi-disciplinary  cooperation (at national, regional or local level)  that  enables  relevant  professionals  to  effectively collaborate to prevent and respond to violence against women and/or children


This call will fund the following activities:

  • awareness-raising activities  targeted  at  women  and/or  children  who  are  victims  or potential victims  of  violence,  and/or  at  bystanders  or  witnesses,  to  encourage  the reporting of violence. Awareness-raising activities targeted towards specific groups of women, children, bystanders and/or witnesses are particularly welcome.
  • the exchange of best  practices  and  development,  testing  and implementation of methods and practical  tools  (including   protocols  and  guidelines)  to  enable  the cooperation and coordination of professionals from different sectors (medical doctors, nurses  and  other  health  professionals, psychologists,  lawyers,  community workers, residential  care  givers, police,  the  judiciary, child helplines/violence against women helplines, victim  support  organisations,  social  workers,  teachers at all levels  of the education  system etc.)  who  come  into  contact  with  women  and/or  children at risk of and/or victims of violence. This could, for example, include training these professionals  to  better identify victims, through routine check-ups or procedures or routinely  posing questions on experiences of violence and adverse childhood experiences, and developing efficient referral mechanisms and pathways
