About the association:

The association was founded in 2017 because of a new German law, the „Bundesteilhabegesetz“ (federal participation law). On the 1st of March 2018 we started working as a helpdesk for people who cannot participate in the same way as others in their social life because of reasons like e.g. disabilities.

The managing-committee:

  • Andreas Hohnhorst, chairman
  • Thomas Ahlrichs, assistant chairman
  • Naby Oberbeck, elected member of the managing-committee
  • Sarah Lechelt, elected member of the managing-committee


The counsellors are ...

Gudrun Zeschke

Counsellor, B.A. social work, different additional qualifications


The voluntary staff are…

  • Ute Ramm
  • Kai Mahler

We offer:

  • free counselling on difficulties concerning restrictions in life
  • assistance for filling out applications
  • psycho-social support with the aim of a self-determined life
  • counselling of those affected, relatives and all people interested

Do you need an interpreter for sign language or any foreign language?
