Our projects

HEKS/EPER is making a difference in the «Social inclusion» in the region of Aargau/Solothurn

The HEKS/EPER Regional Office Aargau/Solothurn sees itself as a practice-oriented counselling and service entity that advocates with great professionalism on behalf of deprived groups in our society. The needs of the socially marginalized are effectively being met by providing social and legal services and cooperating with other aid agencies, government authorities and private institutions.

Important priorities in the work of the Regional Office are legal advice for asylum seekers and the socially disadvantaged, and the social inclusion of refugees, migrants and Swiss citizens experiencing poverty. Through its interpreting service, the Regional Office also facilitates contact between foreign language speakers and institutions concerned with health, social and educational matters.

Head of Regional Office:

Ever more people are being excluded because of their social background, ethnicity, age, gender or religion. Integrating people with a migration background can be compounded, for example, by the lack of the requisite language proficiency, ignorance of Switzerland's cultural specificities or by disadvantages on the job market. HEKS/EPER works actively to ensure that the affected people have access to education, work, government programmes and services. But integration is incumbent on society as a whole, which calls for openness as well as regulatory structures that ensure the right of social participation for all. This implies that everyone has the same rights and opportunities and that features such as gender, age, social background, nationality or religion do not give rise to discrimination.
