Results and impact
According to the Gender Equality Ombudswoman Annual Reports in 2011 there were 184 unemployed victims of family violence registered at the CES (in 2010 130). In 2011 22 victims of family violence have been employed through the assistance of the CES (in 2010 16).
Regarding the victims of family violence in 2011: 66 persons have been included in workshops on how to actively search for a job and on psychosocial support (in 2010 – 89); 41 persons have been included in professional orientation and assessment of work capacity (in 2010 – 21); 27 persons have been included in educational activities (in 2010 – 12); 63 persons have been included in activities provided by CSOs.
Victims of family violence are beneficiaries of ALM. However, employers are not using these measure a lot (according to the CES, due to lack of sensibility on this group), while CSOs are not entitled to this right. Consequently in 2011: 1 women victim of family violence beneficiary of the ALM - Subsidised employment of special groups of unemployed people; 2 women victims of family violence beneficiaries of the ALM – Financing of Education and 16 women victims of family violence beneficiaries of ALM – Public Works.
