Diakonie Austria supports people in difficult life situations – in sickness and in social emergencies, as refugees and in the wake of natural disasters. Diakonie promotes the inclusion of disabled people, accompanies those needing care and also in their old age, invests in educational opportunities for children and teenagers alike. Diakonie ranks amongst the five largest social organizations in Austria. It comments on social policy and takes a stand for the rights and the safety of people in emergency situations.
Diakonie gives a voice to young people in this project and they will coordinate a local A Way Home coalition in Villach, Austria.
