We can help you
PROTECTION AGAINST VIOLENCE
If you are affected or threatened by violence, you have the right to leave and seek shelter with your children. This includes not only psychological, physical, sexual, economic and verbal violence but also stalking and forced marriage. For reasons of safety, the address of our women’s refuge is kept secret.
You can reach us day and night at 061 681 66 33. We will clarify with you whether admission to our women’s refuge is the right thing to do for you. You can call us without entering into an obligation. Interviews are treated confidentially. You can remain anonymous if you wish.
Whenever possible, bring along clothes, your ID cards, relevant documents (health insurance cards, contracts, etc.), medication and one of your children’s favourite soft toys. If this is not possible, we will provide you with the most basic necessities and help you get the papers you need.
OUR HOUSE PROVIDES PROTECTION, COUNSELLING AND SHELTER
A counsellor will be there for you and help you develop new perspectives. She will advise you on legal, administrative and organisational issues and bring you in contact with specialists. You always decide for yourself which way to choose and which steps to do next.
Children are welcome. We will not only support and advise your children but also you as a mother. We help you structure your days and organise leisure activities with your children.
