IMPROVE Training Platform

On this website IMPROVE provides training materials on domestic violence separate for the police, health sector, social sector and legal sector.

Welcome to the international site of the

training platform of the EU project IMPROVE .

IMPROVE – Improving Access to Services for Victims of Domestic Violence by Accelerating Change in Frontline Responder Organisations – is a research and innovation project funded by the European Union. IMPROVE expands the training platform and materials developed in IMPRODOVA to better reflect the European multicultural population, diversity of the victims, the important role of the legal sector in dealing with cases of DV and multiple forms and situations of violence. IMPROVE develops innovative teaching and learning tools to strengthen frontline responders’ competencies to identify victims of violence and to empower particularly vulnerable, underserved, and marginalised victims to access support services.
