Safer place principles

The purpose of the principles is that it is safe for everyone to participate in Victim Support Finland’s activities as a client, volunteer, partner, and employee.

The principles of a safer place at Victim Support Finland

  • Identify your prejudices. Do not make assumptions about someone’s functional ability, health, sexuality, gender, nationality, ethnicity, religion, values, or socioeconomic background.
  • Respect everyone’s physical and mental boundaries. Everyone has different boundaries, and by asking, you know if you can touch another person.
  • Give space. Make sure that everyone can participate in discussions and that they are heard. Be responsible for your own actions and behavior.
  • Address harassment, discrimination, and inappropriate behavior as soon as possible. If this is not possible, please contact the event organizer or an employee at Victim Support Finland. Contact information
