Here at WAVE we are committed to providing you with information on services helpful to women survivors of violence. In the WAVE Violence against Women Directory, you will find the contact information for over 4,000 women's help organizations in 46 countries of Europe.

Use the map of Europe or click on the list of countries below the flag to find service organizations such as shelters, helplines, legal consultation, counseling, and more.

Click here to search for help organizations by country (Please be aware, this site is "under construction"). We are a network aiming at disseminating information on violence against women and connecting feminist organisations. We don't provide counseling services but we can help you access them.

WAVE also recommends that you call the national women's helpline in the country in which you are currently residing. Each country in the WAVE Violence against Women Directory provides a seperate listing of helplines available. Click here to search for helplines by country.

To access the list of national/regional helplines in EU28 countries click here; to access the list of national/regional helplines in non-EU European countries click here.

In case there is no national women's helpline or similar service available in your country, and you need additional information and cannot find a service or a helpline, please contact a WAVE Focal Point in the country for further assistance or download a list of WAVE Focal Points in Europe.
