Models of Service Delivery in Violence Against Women Organizations

There are many types of violence against women organisations within Canada and across the globe. These organisations serve their communities in many ways. They provide support to some of the most vulnerable populations. They work with women who have experienced all types of gender-based abuse, such as:

  • Physical
  • Emotional
  • Psychological
  • Financial
  • Spiritual
  • Sexual abuse.

For this study, there was a focus on violence against women organisations that offer shelter and outreach services. Specifically, to women and their children who have experienced violence or abuse. Other organisations were also considered to compare and understand models of service delivery. From this research, we aim to strengthen and develop a clearer, more united sector. We aim to provide access to professional, consistent services to support women when needed.
