INDICATOR PHRASING: number of survivors regularly attending peer support groups

What is its purpose?

This indicator measures the number of people who have been affected by physical, sexual or emotional abuse that regularly attend meetings of peer support groups.

How to Collect and Analyse the Required Data

Determine the indicator’s value by using the following methodology:


1) Define when a person can be considered as “regularly” attending peer support groups. For example, it can mean that she does not skip more than one out of four meetings.


2) There are two ways to collect the required data:

- Asking the facilitators of peer support groups to provide the number of survivors who regularly attend the group meetings.

- Conducting a survey among a representative number of survivors who attend peer support groups.


3) To determine the indicator’s value, count the number of people who regularly (as defined in point 1) attend the meetings of the peer support groups.
