Gender Based Violence in Andalucía, as well as in the rest of the European regions, is a structural problem that still exists and affects all social sectors. To eradicate this kind of violence, public policies are being developed at different levels. These policies include measures focused on protection, personalized attention and total recovery of the victims and their children from an integrative perspective. It has been demonstrated that to improve the efficacy of the resources, the implementation of institutional coordination mechanisms (including the application of personalized plans and holistic care) is needed. The project aims to improve the coordination of the different Administrations thanks to the exchange of information and protocols. Moreover, the project will establish the Personalized Security and Holistic Care Plan to give an adapted answer to each victim, and will set the base for the creation of a “single window". The project expects to improve the effectiveness of the resources assigned to the eradication of GBV, having a positive effect on victims of this kind of violence and their children, and on professionals of this field.
