We are very pleased to welcome two new member organisations: The Guernsey Victim Support and Witness Service (UK) and the Association DROGA (Poland). Today, VSE’s 72 members span the globe, from Europe to North America and New Zealand. The membership gives organisations unparalleled access not only to our in-house expertise but also to our network of organisations and to the EU institutions and international organisations with whom we collaborate and who regularly speak at our events.
The Guernsey Victim Support and Witness Service is an independent charitable organisation offering free and confidential support to victims and witnesses of crime and their family and friends. They provide emotional support, practical help and information to victims of crime, and to their families and friends. The Witness Service provides support and information for anyone called as a witness to the criminal courts. Support is offered before, during and after the case is heard.
The Association DROGA was registered in the summer of 2010. The aim of the Association is to initiate and support activities in the field of social and health policy, consisting of the implementation of tasks in the field of social integration, health protection and promotion, social work, prevention and treatment of addictions, with particular emphasis on high-risk groups.
The association carries out activities for people in need in the area of prevention and reduction of domestic violence, promotion of gender equality, and support for people at risk of social exclusion. It undertakes therapeutic, preventive, training and professional activities. The association conducts therapy for perpetrators and survivors based on the Duluth and Trauma Informed Model.
We look forward to a fruitful collaboration with our new members.
