Social counselling

People living on the poverty line face many different problems. The Regional Caritas Organisations offer expert advice and support for people in emergency situations.


Especially in seemingly hopeless situations, getting professional help can be a great relief. Caritas offers social advice and in some cases transitional support in case of financial difficulties. For example, where children from families affected by poverty need dental treatment.

A professional team provides advice, information and support with social and financial issues. This is guided by the principle of helping people to help themselves.

The social counselling services offered by Caritas are free of charge; the counsellors are bound by an obligation of confidentiality. Most Regional Caritas Organisations offer social counselling.
