The Antiviolence Center offers support to Italian and foreign women in difficulty and involved in situations of violence and family maltreatment.
It welcomes every form of discomfort of women who can find listening, attention, respect and support. With the awareness that only the activation of individual, family and social resources produces a real personal change, in addition to taking on complex stories and sometimes requiring immediate and strong answers, Randi favors paths of personal growth because the woman victim of violence or abuse can always be an active and conscious subject able to get out of situations of violence and abuse.
The Randi Antiviolence Center offers women:
- Attention, listening, orientation
- Individualized support throughout the path of exit from violence by an operator of the Center
- Hospitality, if necessary, in a dedicated structure to a secret address where the woman can find serenity
- Protection even in cases of emergency for the woman and her children
- Advice and legal support offered by specialized lawyers
- Psychological support to face fear and subjection to the partner and to regain possession of one’s life
- It also offers counseling or psychotherapy paths to women, individually or in groups, who live or have experienced the experience of violence and/or emotional dependency
