Contact points and networking for voluntary engagement

In Saxony-Anhalt, you are not alone in your commitment to the integration of immigrants and refugees. There are many initiatives, projects and organisations you can join or with which to network.  

In the rural districts and independent cities, the coordination offices for integration are central contact points for volunteers and full-time staff. They promote and strengthen integration work on the ground:
