If you already follow our activity you would surely know what STEPS is about, but a little reminder will sure help.

“Steps” project aims to analyses reasons and results of violence against disabled children in particular domestic violence in partner countries and working on new approaches for prevention it. Awareness raising activities on the theme, knowledge, experiences and exchange of the good practices among organizations and partners will be base of this partnership.

The target group consists of staff and members of partner organizations Social workers, trainers/teachers, NGOs who work with disable people and public authorities.

This partnership consists of 4 partners from Italy, Turkey, Germany, UK and each partner has their local silent partners for have maximum local impact.

This partnership will also disseminate the project’s results in terms of the establishment of innovative and qualitative training methods in a European level. Public and privet authorities could also be benefited by the use of the project’s results.

This second meeting will take place in London from the 14 till the 17 of November, and  will particularly be focussed on the production of new methodological methods and strategies. Namely we will brainstorm and write down essential parts of the manual, to be later on used by trainers and educators . Another important activity we will do during the project is the sharing of the best practices. The partners will gather and then tell particular stories of real people who have suffered by violence and discrimination In their own countries. This will be useful to get a closer look on what is the reality of the situation in partner countries. The case studies are also an occasion to reflect and think about the gravity of the problem.

In the last meeting day we plan to dig into visibility tools giving a boost to our website www.steps.ceipes.org

All right then, it is all for now. Please continue reading us, in the next weeks we will publish all the latest news and outcomes from the project.
