The TISOVA project (2017-2020), funded under the Erasmus+ programme of the European Commission, seeks to train employees and volunteers of senior centres as well as older people to identify and provide assistance for older victims of abuse. Within the interactive training program developed as an outcome of the project, the main objective is to educate these key groups on violence perpetrated against elderly, as well as on the experiences and specific needs of elderly victims of abuse.
The first publication of the project, ”Analytical Report on Abuse of Older Women in Selected European Countries”has now been published. The report explores existing research on violence against older women as well as experiences and needs of both older women and professionals in the project countries. The report works as the foundation for the currently developed training curriculum in the project.
