Daphne Project (2002 - 2003)

(06 Aug 2009)

Under the auspices of the Daphne Programme of the European Commission, EASPD was given the opportunity to develop and launch a Knowledge Centre for the "Prevention of and Response to Sexual Abuse of People with a Learning Disability www.stoppingabuse.org.  It enables easy access, with the possibility of gaining information about the prevention of/and response to sexual abuse. It offers information about key issues and findings and creates the opportunity to exchange ideas and develop networks of advice and support.  The outcomes from this project were highlighted in the National Federation of Voluntary Bodies Respect Symposium which was held in Killarney on 5th & 6th of November 2003.

EASPD, in co-operation with 10 European Partners, were also involved in a project “Safeguarding people with disabilities against sexual violence - with particular reference to the experiences and insights of families”.  The outcomes from the project will be available in the Knowledge Centre - www.stoppingabuse.org.   The final Daphne Conference was held in Brussels on 3rd March 2006.
