SAFE Ireland values

  1. Dialogue
  2. The creation of knowledge from which to act
  3. The lived experience of the women and children with whom we work. We understand how these these must be linked to the society and environment in which we work and live.

We place at the core of our work the “generation of knowledge” related to the experiences of women and children, services and the society in which we live and work. We will gather this knowledge, validate it, understand it and act on it in order to progress a social change agenda. This is the unique role of SAFE Ireland and one that we are well placed to deliver on. We want to see that the needs of women and children are met and that civic society takes responsibility for the eradication of violence against women.

One of SAFE Ireland’s core strategies aims to

Develop projects and processes to generate knowledge and learning. We will gather this knowledge/learning, understand it and act on it to progress our social change agenda and provide leadership at national level.

See current research for details of research projects that we are working on at the moment.
