General Information and Counselling Centres for Victims of Crime

Here you will find information and counselling centres that are not specialized in supporting the victims of racist violence but refer to all victims of crime. They provide help and support for the victims and offer short-term therapies during psychological crises, if necessary, with an interpreter.

Unfortunately the websites are available only in German. Please contact the counselling centres initially in English.
