ExReMet

(Examining the Rehabilitation Methods of the Women Exposed to


Domestic Violence at European Level)
The ExReMet event on Friday 24th July 2015 proved there is a lot of concern, understanding and good
practice happening throughout Europe on the issue of domestic abuse and violence against women.
Partners in the Grundtvig collaboration from Hungary, Italy, Portugal, Romania, Spain and Scotland (UK)
attended their last partnership meeting to share their work over the last two years with practitioners
throughout Scotland. Over the two years the women from all six countries have designed and disseminated
several products e.g. a social & legal report, a report on services available, an ExReMet bag in each country,
a leaflet with womens inspirational stories, and a dvd which shows campaigns and services throughout the
six countries. At the event they each presented this work.
To an audience of womens aid workers, community safety workers, Assist, the Procurator Fiscals office,
Scottish Drugs Forum, SAY women, community development practitioners and many other vital workers in
the field of domestic abuse and violence against women, the Minister for Community Safety & Legal Affairs.
Paul Wheelhouse MSP explained that the present Scottish government will be providing additional
resources for Court work, community safety and support for other services. Other key speakers included
Baillie Fariha Thomas from Glasgow City Council and Dr Marsha Scott from Scottish Womens Aid. The full
transcript and recording of the event as well as the groundbreaking dvd will be available to view on this site
soon.
