The final result of the WAVE Daphne Project is now available for download.

The contents of this Manual evolved during the DAPHNE project BRIDGING GAPS, implemented by WAVE from April 2005 to March 2006. It is the final result of the project.

The aim of the project was to develop guidelines and standards for good cooperation between state agancies and women's NGOs. The manual is based on the contributions of "bridging gaps" project partners from 11 European countries and draws upon the work and experiences of many committed experts and academics in the field. Coordinated interventions are needed to achieve the goal of preventing violence; no agency can succeed in isolation. Effective teamwork is needed rather than single players. This Manual aims at contributing to the development and improvement of effective multi-agency cooperation by providing background information as well as concrete guidance and recommendations. It is one of the main goals of this Manual to focus on the protection and safety of victims. All agencies involved in the issue, especially the police and the justice system, have a responsibility to protect the victims, to prevent further violence and to provide the best and most effective services and interventions.

WAVE wants to thank the European Commission, all the project partners and associated partners as well as all the people and institutions who directly or indirectly supported this project.
