Extensive cooperation is carried out to prevent intimate partner violence

In order to improve the prevention of intimate partner violence, Helsinki has assembled a working group to promote the issue in broad cooperation as part of the promotion of Helsinki's well-being and health. The working group's term of office is five years (2021-2025).

The working group makes proposals on measures, communication and education to prevent intimate partner violence. The group also monitors the development of the crime rate of intimate partner violence. The working group will also examine what kind of work is being done in other municipalities in the Helsinki metropolitan area and promote cooperation with other cities in the Helsinki metropolitan area.

The aim is for city residents to become more aware of the services and channels of assistance and to be encouraged to request help.
