Bounce Back – Victim Support Saarland
Bounce Back is a Saarland-based support centre for people who have been affected by, or who have witnessed, politically motivated violence (physical assault, threats, verbal abuse, etc.).
As a protective safe space for those affected, the support centre does not tolerate discrimination, racism, right-wing ideologies and any other forms of devaluation.
Support is free of charge, confidential, anonymous if required and solution-oriented, whereby the focus is always on the needs of those affected.
We support those affected in exercising their rights and in coping with the impact of assault or discrimination.
Support also includes the provision of information, e.g. on reporting a case to the police, relevant information on legal assistance (Law Clinic SU) and, if needed and requested, accompaniment to sessions with psychotherapeutic specialists (University Psychotherapy Outpatient Clinic).
The effects of discrimination and violence should not be underestimated. They can have psychological as well as physical consequences for those affected and can cause long-term damage.
We offer an interpreting service and can therefore provide support in multiple languages.
