Social issues

Those with problems, worries and difficulties will find a comprehensive overview of the city's social services on the adjacent pages.

The spectrum of assistance on offer ranges from family counselling, housing, pastoral care, an overview of social centres and second-hand department stores to topics relating to pensions and senior citizens.

The advisory services, initial assistance and support are provided by specialist staff, associations and clubs, as well as socially committed volunteers. The aim of the advisory services and assistance is to accompany people with social concerns, to solve problems or prevent new ones and to promote the social participation of everyone.

Anyone, regardless of age, political conviction and denomination, can take advantage of the services.
