Protect, shelter and assist
Nearly 220,000 women each year declare they have suffered from abuse, not counting those who still do not dare to speak out: these numbers are constantly growing. Marginalised women are more exposed to physical and/or sexual abuse, to precariousness, to social inequalities in health or employment… and have difficulty accessing specialised services.
To address this, Groupe SOS has developed a special reception service for women in several of its facilities. In 2021, nearly 600 women victims of abuse were assisted in specific or general services provided by Groupe SOS.
