On May 25th and 26th, the partners of MARVOW met for the second steering committee meeting and the first Train of Trainers meeting. The meeting should have taken place in Tartu, Estonia, but due to the COVID-19 restrictions, the partners met online. Due to the current impossibility to conduct regional activities, MARVOW has been extended until March 2022.

The project partners meet every 6 months to work together on furthering the project. During the first day of meeting, the project leader AÖF (Austrian Women’s Shelter Network) welcomed the participants and presented the developments in terms of project management and reporting. WSIC (Women’s Support and Information Centre) introduced the first steps towards developing a multi-agency cooperation model, namely three reports analysing the situation in the partner countries and the use of multi-agency cooperation around Europe, both in women’s support services and in perpetrator programmes. UWAH (Union of Women Associations of Heraklion Prefecture) presented the case studies developed for the regional meetings and UT (University of Tartu) explained how the evaluation of the multi-agency cooperation model will be conducted. To conclude the first day’s activities, the WAVE Network presented the developments in the dissemination of the project, such as the new project website, the leaflets, and the upcoming social media campaign for World Elder Abuse Awareness Day.

The second day was dedicated to the Train of Trainers, which is a preparatory meeting for the activities that will take place at a national level with different stakeholders. The two main multi-agency cooperation approached that will be used during the project (MARAC and CCR), were presented and analysed. To conclude the final day, WWP EN presented strategies and information to help partners implement perpetrator work in the project materials and activities.
