Help with personal problems (social work)

During unemployment, problems can arise that lie beyond the search for a job or a lack of qualifications. In order to provide you with the best possible support in a difficult life situation, there are trained social workers at the Jobcenter Dortmund who will advise you, provide concrete assistance or call in additional specialist agencies. The social workers at the job centre help in particular in cases of indebtedness, difficulties in the family environment, addictions or psychosocial problems.

Very specific concerns can be, for example:

  • I am overburdened with my family situation (e.g. childcare, care of relatives)
  • I or a relative have an addiction and need help
  • I am in debt and would like to reduce my debts
  • I have mental health problems and would like to talk to someone
  • I have experienced violence and need help

Especially in the current pandemic period, such a difficult situation may arise. Do not hesitate to contact us! The social workers are available from Monday to Thursday from 08:00 to 12:00 and 13:00 to 15:00 and Friday from 08:00 to 12:00 under the direct dial number 0231 842-9330 available for you.
