The Service for Handling and Reporting Cases of Institutional Violence (SAIDAVI, abbreviated in Catalan) provides legal and psychosocial support to people suffering maltreatment within the Catalan criminal justice system.
Our Legal team is made up of criminal defence lawyers specialised in protecting human rights. We provide advice, legal assistance and representation in judicial proceedings according to decisions made by the entity.
Our Psychosocial team is made up of professionals experienced in supporting people and groups in contexts involving political violence and violation of fundamental rights. This support is oriented to increase people’s strength and resilience to pain and trauma. We provide direct care to people affected, to family members and to other persons around them through a comprehensive approach.
