Aging Without Violence is a 4-year training and resource project focused on ending violence against older women in Ontario.
The Aging Without Violence (AWV) project is guided by an inter-sector provincial advisory including stakeholders with expertise in violence against older women, public education, service provider training, research, and improved community responses.
Overall, the project will promote a holistic approach and an integrated response in the development of service provider training to address violence against older women in Ontario, in addition to the following principles:
- Choice and Self Determination
- Safety and Security
The overall aim of the project is to enhance responses and advocacy efforts when supporting older women impacted by violence, in alignment with Ontario’s Action Plan for Seniors.
