This call for proposals aims to contribute to the reduction of Domestic Violence in Barbados and the Eastern Caribbean.

Priorities and funded actions:


– To prevent domestic violence through gender-sensitive early and continuous education, behavioural change and rehabilitation of perpetrators

– To strengthen safety nets for victims of domestic violence, including legal protection


– An active and sustainable role of civil society, representing the interests of all sexes and ages, in collaboration with the different public and private institutions

– Innovative, cost-effective and sustainable interventions which contribute to the change of cultural perceptions and behaviours

– Reinforcing the legislative framework and accompanying mechanisms – including data collection – in place to prevent domestic violence and protect its victims

Among financed actions

– Enhance civil society organisations’ policy advocacy, lobbying, researching, analysis, documenting, monitoring and implementation strategies on violations of women and children’s rights, and foster strong institutional and political links between local, community and national levels including the strengthening of partnerships and networks of civil society organizations

– Legal and paralegal services, psychological counselling and emergency assistance (shelters, psychological and medical support, mediation and/or reintegration programmes) provided for victims and rehabilitation programmes for perpetrators of domestic violence

– Building public recognition of and behavioural change to the problem of domestic violence, including early education, involvement of media in awareness-raising campaigns, and community-based actions

– Capacity building and awareness-raising targeting the police, judiciary, vulnerable groups, local legal authorities, local health workers and social workers, equipping them with basic knowledge to respond to victims and perpetrators of domestic violence

– Provision of technical support and mobilization of resources for local groups to initiate community-based activities to counter domestic violence through subgranting or other modalities

– A harmonised protocol for reporting (especially co-ordination between the various players – shelters, police force, hospitals) can be created and applied, including a standard reporting sheet for all domestic violence cases.
