More information


Problems of coexistence have been detected in our accommodation resources for women victims of gender-based violence, by bringing together under one roof women from different nationalities and cultures. A computer platform that meets the needs of the whole network of resources of the Women’s Institute of Castilla-La Mancha is also necessary. The project aims to redesign and diversify the comprehensive resource network of support and individualized assistance to women victims of gender-based violence in our region. It is expected to achieve an analysis and diagnosis of the situation of these women, that allows to adapt the existing assistance resources to their identified needs. The protocol for the attention of women victims of gender-based violence will be expanded. A new experimental supervised apartment managed by an itinerant professional team will be implemented. It will be developed a new computer application that provides cover to the whole network of resources and allows its integration with other systems. The project will benefit women of all ages, who are victims of gender-based violence, and their children.

Summary of project results

On one hand, the project has provided us with a real view of the regional resources network through a SWOT analysis.The overhaul was necessary as it was defined in 2001. On the other hand, and as a fundamental objective, a new software application has been developed, DULCINEA, which allows access at all times to the (single) file of a user of our network, registering the services provided and making the statistical exploitation of the information contained in it, which favours the decision making and facilitates the publication of data and its exchange. It has also meant a change in the philosophy of work in the network, considering gender-based violence as a mainstream issue to women, not another area of their lives, and a homogenization of the tasks and procedures that are developed in each of the resources. Its impact will be measured in future years when the assistance model and the use of DULCINEA has been consolidated.
