The Section of Social Affairs

Our goal is to provide systemic help to people in difficult situations. We focus on seniors, homeless people, handicapped people, children, youth, families at risk, and socially excluded communities.

What do we do?

  • Our section handles several social services and facilities
    (For example, accommodation, facilities for seniors, and children and family centres.)
  • A significant portion of our work consists of funding providers of social services (For example, facilities for seniors, NGOs working with youth, the homeless, or people taking drugs, etc.)
  • Last, but not least, we also work in the streets by way of our City Mobile Team. (This mainly works with young people and socially excluded communities, as well as with the homeless.)

However, we do a great deal more. We present our activities and other interesting information in the social field on our Facebook page of Bratislava for All ↗︎.
