Victims' Assistance Units providing sustainable and comprehensive services for abused children and their families, working in partnership with the community, the state government and non-government agencies under a state-wide multidisciplinary child protection system in pursuit of the realization of children's rights in the state of Goa
Looking into the work and support provided by the Victim Assistance Unit, the Department of Women and Child Development, Govt. of Goa, appointed SCAN--Goa to set-up and run a temporary One Stop Centre for Goa. This has been functioning since November 2015.
The One Stop Centre provides support and assistance to women affected by violence, both in private and public spaces.
Due to inconsistency in investigation processes, it was felt necessary to conduct trainings and awareness programmes for different stake holders.
Hence SCAN-Goa in collaboration with Dept. of Women and Child development & Juvenile Justice Board has conducted various trainings for police, anganwadi workers, children’s homes, etc. The training programmes were focused on the legal frame work and way forward.
