This European project has two main goals:

  • Empower Women
  • Improve Services

All in the area of Domestic Violence


Here’s our plan of action

  • Provide EU-wide training for over 70 front-line staff (trainers, counsellors on the use of the Emprove approach)
  • Develop new methodologies in the area of domestic violence for both front-line staff and survivors
  • Develop network guidelines for successful DV prevention and intervention
  • Establish a network of support by connecting and further developing relationships between key stakeholders working in the field
  • Make informed and relevant recommendations for policy
  • Develop an innovative approach for the intervention of domestic violence using experiential e-learning through gamification
  • Build a gamification online platform for survivors and front-line staff
  • Conduct research and best practice analysis across 14 EU countries & the USA 


Here are two areas will will deliver our plan:


Games have the ability to engage people for longer periods of time, develop their potential and build meaningful relationships between people. Gamification utilises ‘experiential learning’ as participants reflect on their learning through online learning experiences. Emprove uses an online gamification platform for both front-line staff and survivors of domestic violence


Emprove seeks to empower individuals by building upon their resilience. It will increase their self-confidence, motivation and self-esteem through recognition of their own ability. Providing opportunities for decision making, goal orientated task completion and facilitated positive learning experiences.
