Przeciwdziałanie przemocy w rodzinie – zadania administracji publicznej i formy pomocy
Preventing Violence in Families – Obligations of the Public Administration and Forms of Assistance
Languages of publication
The Supreme Audit Office has carried out an audit aimed at evaluating the effectiveness of the public administration’s obligations set out in the law on preventing violence in families, and the treatment of victims of violence and those who use it. The audit comprised 37 entities, including 14 welfare centres, 14 local police headquarters, four local family assistance centres and five regional welfare centres. The findings of the audit revealed serious discrepancies between the planned objectives of the amended regulations, in force since 1 August 2010, and their functioning in practice. The amendments introduced have seriously deteriorated the situation of those experiencing domestic violence, and they have also led to a significant drop of disclosed violence cases.
