Ethical Guidelines for Working with Women Victims of Violence


This document contains ethical guidelines for those working with women survivors of family violence. They have been developed to provide activists of shelters for women and children who have experienced violence with  readily available guidance about the principles of ethical treatment towards beneficiaries. The Code of Ethics is more than a set of rules: it is a way of linking SOS`s organizational values and their vision with their everyday work. As women's human rights activists, they are committed to upholding the highest ethical standards in order to maintain the trust of women they work with and to help them.
