Social innovations in the non-statutory welfare organisations in germany


We are here for people – regardless of their origin, religion and beliefs


The Federal Association of Non-statutory Welfare (BAGFW) is the collective voice of the
six non-statutory welfare umbrella organisations in Germany. The Arbeiterwohlfahrt, the
Deutsche Caritasverband, the Deutsche Rote Kreuz, the Deutsche Paritätische Wohlfahrtsverband,
the Diakonie Deutschland - evangelischer Bundesverband and the Zentralwohlfahrtsstelle
der Juden in Deutschland are all based on different religions and beliefs.

The six umbrella organisations cooperating in the Federal Association of Non-statutory
Welfare give voice to the concerns that unite them: support for all people in need.
