What can you do if you are subjected to domestic or sexual abuse? Who helps abuse victims in Switzerland?
Victims of physical or psychological violence can contact Victim Support throughout Switzerland.
Freiburg Women’s Shelter (Solidarité Femmes) is committed to combating violence against women. It offers advice either face-to-face by appointment or by e-mail and telephone. Freiburg Women’s Shelter also runs an emergency refuge for abused women and their children.
