The aim of the Gap Work project has been to pilot training that 'improves the interventions against Gender-related Violence and referrals made by those who work with young people. Training has been developed and piloted in Italy, Ireland, Spain and the UK during 2013 and 2014.

This one day Findings Conference presented the training models that were designed and tested in the 4 EU countries, shared reports of the experience, identified lessons from the evaluation studies and invited commentary on the research.

The event combined presentations of quantitative and qualitative data and comparative reports, of interest to researchers in the field of gender related violence, and interactive development of ideas for the implementation of these findings, particularly in the training and education of those such as teachers, youth workers, social workers and health professionals who work with young people.

The event catered for two main audiences:
- those delivering education and training for practitioners who work with children and young people
- researchers, lobbyists and policy makers 

Speakers included academics from the 5 participating Universities and training experts from the 6 training partners. See our project partner section for the full list of institutions and people.
