Service Description

Women and girls who are victims of violence need professional advice and protection. In Schleswig-Holstein, there are specialized counselling centres for women affected and threatened by violence throughout the state.

The women's advice centres and helplines in Schleswig-Holstein offer personal advice to women in crisis situations, especially in cases of domestic or sexualized violence. They provide information on the various forms of help available, for example on the possibilities offered by the Protection against Violence Act, or offer support when visiting public offices or legal advice, as well as advice for relatives, caregivers and professional helpers.

Outside of counseling hours, the nationwide violence against women helpline provides advice on all forms of violence around the clock, anonymously, confidentially, multilingually and barrier-free.

In addition, women's shelters offer refuge and protection for women and their children around the clock in current situations of violence
