Portuguese Victim Support Association (APAV) supports, in an individualized, qualified and humanized way, victims of crimes and violence. It has as reference spaces the GAV (Victim Support Office) and Shelter House. 80% of the work they do is to empower and autonomize the victim. Their legal, psychological and social support always has as a concern the respect for the victim’s decision-making and respect for the time it may lead to take it. In extreme cases, we’re talking about life threatening situations, when the need to protect these victims is verified, Shelter Houses are used where they are installed, being completely uprooted from the life they knew until then, but in safety. As a reference, 80% of the victims are women, where 39% of
offenders are husbands or mates and in more than 50% of cases the common residence is the location of the crime (2016 numbers).
