csm_ambulante-hilfen-zur-erziehung-leverkusen_6df6dc465bIn June, our German member Diakonie Michaelshoven, opened a new “education centre’’ in downtown Leverkusen, North Rhine-Westphalia (Germany).

Modern families, overwhelmed with responsibility, sometimes struggle to manage their homes. The centre is aimed at supporting them in their everyday efforts to raise their children with the help of qualified Educational and Social Assistants.

Families, single parents, and young people are followed by a contact person which helps them to find new solutions to improve the wellbeing of their families. In addition, a network of parents and different ‘’media consumption’’ workshops are offered as part of an ongoing awareness-raising programme.

The ambulatory received the official approval from the local Jugendamt (Youth Office) to promote the welfare of children in the area, and it is already fully operational.
