Kvinnojouren Viktoria, a women’s shelter, wish that you can live in a relationship with someone who makes you feel good. Your partner should respect you as an equal and be proud of you. They should care about you and any children you might have. In Sweden people over the age of 18 have the right to make decisions about their own economy, life and future. People under the age of 18 also have the right to participate in decisions concerning their situation.
Kvinnojouren Viktoria meet many women who are in an unhealthy relationship. They are or have been experiencing different types of violence. Many have been exposed to psychological, physical, economic and/or sexual violence. Many times they feel controlled and undervalued. Sometimes they aren’t allowed to spend time with whoever they want or study whatever they want.
If you are experiencing something that limits your possibilities to live your life like you want to, tell someone you trust.
Kvinnojouren Viktoria exists to give support and help to women who are experiencing violence in their relationship or family. You can call or email us. You can also come visit us to talk. You can bring someone with you as support if you want. If you know anyone else who might be in need of our help you are also welcome to contact us.
We also have a protected shelter for women and children that need to hide to escape violence and threats.
Kvinnojouren Viktoria has a long history of helping women in difficult situations. We can give information about what help you can receive from government organs and organisations based on your specific situation. We can also help and support you while in contact with them.
With us you can be anonymous and we have made a promise of silence. You choose yourself what you want to tell us.
We want to listen to you, with us you never have to be ashamed of what you have been put through!
