How can we help?
Our experts in “"Council of Refugee Women in Bulgaria"” work in the areas of Social Mediation and Lobbying and Advocacy. We organize and conduct internal trainings for the team, specific trainings for professionals, develop new advocacy activities for the organization in individual cases.
Internal guidelines have been developed for dealing with cases of gender- or origin-based violence, domestic violence, physical, mental and sexual violence in the framework of guiding documents, according to which our team works with its beneficiaries - both directly through mediation and counseling, and and indirectly, by notifying the competent public authorities.
Our expert team also develops an internal methodology for working on cases of refugees and asylum seekers, which includes the specifics of social assessment, prioritization of needs, work plan and scope of referrals. The methodology takes into account both the cultural differences, the prehistory of traumatic events and the specific current situation of people who find themselves in a different and unknown country and face the need to rebuild their lives for themselves and their children.
Together with our partners, we bring together various specialists working directly with refugees and asylum seekers for trainings and seminars on current practical issues. Volunteer trainings are also held, where topics such as the personal and community meaning of volunteering are discussed, as well as practical actions with which the volunteer can be useful.
