Regional counseling for refugees

Refugees with insecure residence permit status can use our counselling and advice service to receive information and support with any questions around asylum law, right of residence and social legislation.

At any point during the asylum procedure, you can access information about your rights and support in dealing with government agencies. If you haven’t applied for asylum yet or are considering an apprenticeship or a university degree instead, we can provide advice.

  • Asylum procedure
  • Communication with government agencies
  • Professional training and employment
  • Access to support and advice around social as well as mental and physical health issues
  • Specialised support members of vulnerable groups, especially gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and intersex refugees (LGBTI)

Open meeting place to get to know each other, socialize, cook, play and have a good time

Every Tuesday from 6 to 9 pm, Senlima offers a safe place for young lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersexual (LGBTI) refugees and migrants aged between 14 and 27. During the meetings, we also plan leisure activities and workshops.


Sometimes, bisexual and lesbian women* and inter*, trans* and non-binary people need their own space, with their own topics.

Every 1st, 3rd, 4th and 5th Wednesday from 5 to 7 pm, Senlima BLINT* offers a safe space for bisexual and lesbian women* and inter*, trans* and non-binary people aged between 14 and 27 who had to leave their home countries for various reasons or who do not yet feel at home here.

Support in the integration process

Do you have difficulties or questions with regard to your situation?

E.g. difficulties in dealing with authorities, in searching for a language course or for a flat? We support you in your process.

Psycho-social counselling

Don't you feel well mentally?

Do you suffer from anxiety with regard to your situation? Do you have problems in the relationship with your partner? Without an appointment, we offer you our counselling services, every Wednesday from 2 to 4 pm. Or you make a separate appointment with us.

Counselling and trainings
on LGBTI refugees

We offer counselling and trainings for volunteers and professionals who work with refugees.

The trainings aim at educating on the topics related to LGBTI refugees and at sensitizing for their special needs.
