Shelter for victims of violence

There is a safe place for victims of abuse: safe houses.

They protect people exposed to acute violence, such as women suffering abuse at home, victims of traffickers and targets of gender or sexual orientation maltreatment.

Safe houses provide security, safe and free accommodation and food, psychosocial support, counselling, psychotherapy and legal assistance.

There are many safe houses in cities all over Serbia, often run by local municipalities. If you cannot find one quickly, you can call the DIMAK centre for advice. You can find the contact data here:
