Social Services
The Social Service Centre is the first point of contact for refugees who would like to receive answers to their questions, for example questions concerning the asylum procedure, residence, work, education, housing, school, university studies etc. If necessary, Social Services can refer you to other services. If you live in a refugee centre, there is a Social Service Centre right in your centre. If you live in a residential flat, you will be told which Social Service Centre you can turn to. This is according to where you live in Lörrach:
  • Lörrach City, Stetten, Salzert, Tüllingen   -  Diakonisches Werk
  • Tumringen, Haagen, Hauingen, Brombach   -  Caritasverband
Each refugee centre also has voluntary helpers. These are people who, outside of their work, offer many different services especially for refugees, for example, support during appointments with government agencies or doctors, German courses or sports. Social Services can also help you get in touch with these helpers. If you need an interpreter for an important appointment, please also turn to your Social Service Centre.
A lot of useful information for refugees is available via the smartphone app „Arriving“  (Ankommen), including information on the asylum procedure, work, education, shopping, health, mobility, children, learning German and housing. We strongly recommend taking a look at the information in the app.
