Elder financial abuse (EFA) is a rampant and prevailing problem.

The Coalition is currently engaged in a number of partnership programmes to deal with and address the growing concerns relating to domestic violence plaguing our society. Here are just a few examples.

Youth Speak Up Project: In a UWI-led project, CADV is promoting the voices of youth on development issues that affect them, and in particular, gender-based violence.

The Coalition provides free counselling support services to persons who have been victims of domestic violence, as well as to perpetrators who wish to stop their abusive behaviour. This includes sessions for couples, and young persons. Counselling is carried out by our qualified in-house counsellors. Appointments can be made by telephoning the Coalition’s office.

Development of a case management protocol: As part of the UN EC Spotlight Programme in Trinidad and Tobago, CADV is working with UNFPA and with the Ministry of Social Development and Family Services to develop a case management strategy that ensures access to coordinated, timely, and quality multi-sectoral services for all women and girls who have experienced family violence.

Expanding Civil Society Advocacy and Action to Enhance Quality Service Delivery to Women and Girls affected by Family Violence: Working in Southeast Trinidad and in Tobago, CADV will partner with community-based organizations to expand prevention programming with youth.

First Time, Last Time: Targeting older adolescents and youth, in 2021 CADV will focus on preventing the initiation of violence in relationships. The programme will build the confidence of young women and men to demand healthy, respectful, and equitable relationships and to speak up and act against violence. The key message is that we can all change/be the change and contribute to zero tolerance for all forms of violence.

COMMITTED TO ENDING

DOMESTIC VIOLENCE

The CADV is mostly comprised of individuals and organisations addressing the concerns of violence in the society. We try to be representative of both rural and urban areas. Our programmes support and involve persons of all racial, social, religious and economic groups, ages and lifestyles. We oppose the use of physical, emotional, psychological, sexual, financial and spiritual violence as a means of control over others. We support wholesome family life, equality in relationships, and the concept of helping people to assume control over their own lives.
