Who we are
Diaconie is the social welfare organisation of Germany’s Protestant churches. We operate independently and across political parties. We respect the dignity and uniqueness of every human being, and work to promote every individual’s right to independence and self-determination. Diaconie provides aid to people in need of careIn addition, Diaconie advocates on behalf of the underprivileged in politics and society, leading discussions on the causes of poverty and social injustice. The Diaconie Schleswig-Holstein, based in Rendsburg, is an umbrella organization of diaconal organisations and associations. About 28.000 staff members work in more than 900 facilities, and thousands of volunteers are involved in diaconal activities. As umbrella organization the Diaconie of Schleswig-Holstein represents the interests of its member organisations and offers advice to its members in legal, conceptional, educational and economic matters. It negotiates framework agreements and recruits grants from the EU, federal and regional levels and social lotteries.
Why we are involved in SEMPRE Accelerators
Our micro project in SEMPRE Accelerators
AllDi (Alleinerziehende in Dithmarschen) is an initiative for and by single parents that co-created a regional website for single parents to network and communicate with each other. Before, there was no public place or platform in which single parents could find important information specifically targeted at them; relevant events and activities were only in a "mouth to mouth" way without structured communication channels. Now, our goal is to further develop and improve our service and to become independent from European funding.
