Our Services Evaluated

West Cork Women Against Violence commissioned  Dr. Caroline Crowley from March- September 2016 to conduct an evaluation of our services. This involved a survey of both clients who had used the service and of professionals in other agencies with whom we work.

The aim of the evaluation was to find out directly from those who come in contact with West Cork Women Against Violence what they thought of the work we do and what impact our services have on them. The research involved an anonymous survey which went out to 40 clients and over 30 agencies, community and voluntary groups and frontline professionals in health, social work, Garda Siochana and others.

The women who have used the service speak in their own words about what WCWAV meant to them and the importance of its support in a time in their lives when they felt that no one else understood what they were experiencing. The responses and recommendations made by all those who responded will form the basis of West Cork Women Against Violence next 3 year Strategic Plan 2017-2020.

The results and analysis of that survey are told here in the final report “Someone to Turn to, Somewhere to Go.“
The presentation of that Report’s findings which was given by Dr. Caroline Crowley at the Report’s launch on 22nd September 2016 is available to download as a pdf file here: evaluation2016
