Alberta Council of Women’s Shelters is launching a new Inventory of Promising Practices, developed as part of the Safety from Domestic Violenceproject. This inventory represents the culmination of extensive consultation and research into the supports and barriers facing women and children fleeing domestic abuse in Alberta.

About the project:
Following a two-year research process with ACWS members, survivors, service providers, government, law enforcement and leading experts in the field of domestic violence prevention, ACWS has developed a practical inventory of evidence-based actions we can take as a community to enhance safety for survivors of domestic violence.

The Inventory of Promising Practices will function as an interactive online tool that (1) service providers can use to improve the safety of women fleeing abuse, (2) survivors can use to understand the resources available in Alberta, and (3) funders can use to assess proposals.
