Services for people in difficult life situations
People in crises can turn for help and advice at specific centres that are provided at any time. These institutions help people who are threatened by exclusion from society as a result of poverty, a personal crisis, lack of education, a different ethnic background, etc.
Housing problems can be temporarily solved by shelters or transition, so called half-way, houses. Social empowerment services focus on providing support to families with children to help improve their communication abilities and social skills.
There are low-threshold centres where children and teenagers from “at risk” groups can productively spend their free time whichhelps to alleviate the risks of adolescence and exclusion.
People in crises can receive help at SOS centres or counselling centres. This includes advice relating to difficult situations and abuse.
