Hessischer Flüchtlingsrat (hfr)

Our target group:

The staff of job centres and employment agencies, voluntary workers as well as network partners throughout Hessen. For more information see Training Courses

All refugees in Hessen who search for advice on asylum law and who do not have a BLEIB-consultation office in their district

What we offer

  • Consultation on asylum law

    The hrf assists all BLEIB-employees on legal questions regarding asylum, residence and work/professional training. That way a long-time stay perspective can be developed for asylum seekers, tolerated refugees and refugees that can be permanently secured by employment.

  • ESF-BAMF-language courses

    Asylum seekers, who are still in their procedure, can participate in professional ESF-BAMF-language courses under the following conditions:
    a) They have ‘subordinate labour market access’ which means they are in Germany for at least 3 months
    b) They have prior knowledge of the German language (Minimum A1)

  • Training courses for employment agencies, job centres and multipliers

    The hfr runs training courses concerning the topic “foreign law basics for the labour market integration of refugees”.
    Furthermore, the hfr offers several information events and training courses for voluntary workers and multipliers.

    NOW: Consultation and training courses concerning the work with traumatised refugees in relation to the labour market

About us

With headquarter in Frankfurt am Main we stand up for the recognition of refugee’s rights and the improvement of their living conditions.

The hfr works in close cooperation with voluntary workers and consultation centres as well as with public authorities e.g. the Alien’s Office, employment agencies and job centres to find the right solution according to each refugee’s needs.

Our umbrella organisation was founded in 1991 and functions as a link between political decision-makers and active citizens who support the integration of refugees.
