People in Need  Social Integration  Praha


The Prague office of the People in Need’s Social Integration Programmes has been working since 1999. We have been providing counselling, field social work, educational programmes and other services for more than 10 years. We offer and provide our services within the whole area of Prague.

The Prague branch has offices in two districts - Prague 5, Smíchov and Prague 8, Karlín. Thus, we can get closer to the people who make use of our services. We have an open-door policy which means that at least once a week people may come to both offices to consult their problems at any time during the whole day without having an appointment. Moreover, there are regular programmes carried out such as low-threshold mothers clubs, pre-school clubs, clubs for children and teenagers, and last but not least group tutoring sessions also held here.

Our field social services are designed to help people who got into a serious social situation and whose financial distress or lack of education prevent them from coping with their difficulties. Most often, our field workers deal with assignments focused on maintaining or securing housing, solutions to debt problems as many are burdened with crippling debts, and legal measures in family relationships or social benefits counselling.

Educational activities are aimed especially at young children and the youth, however we also offer help to adults. What can you imagine under ‘educational activities’? It covers preparation of pre-school children for entering primary school, tutoring primary-school children, and preparation for secondary school studies or help with their career choice. We cooperate with one hundred volunteers who provide the tutoring.

In Prague we provide the following services:

  • field social work
  • support for education and tutoring in families
  • careers guidance
  • employment counselling service
  • mothers club
  • pre-school club
