Purpose: This 24-month pilot project will empower Anglophone, Francophone and Aboriginal women victims and survivors of Intimate Partners Violence (IPV) in New Brunswick to better understand the barriers preventing them from leading healthier and safer lives and improve the training received by social workers in New Brunswick on the issue. Women will form a working committee to assess, via a gender lens, a training program delivered to provincial social workers in order to ensure it responds to the realities women survivors face. A support network will be created across the province and new culturally-adapted tools will be developed.
