Information for people with disabilities
No one is excluded in Bocholt. People with disabilities receive support and help in many places in Bocholt and in the region.
Exchange of experience
One means of coping with the particular stresses of a physical or mental illness or disability is to share experiences with people who have the same condition. The district of Borken, in cooperation with the self-help contact point Kreis Coesfeld / Kreis Borken, maintains a database of local self-help groups and self-help organisations at Selbsthilfenetz.de This contributes to better coping with the illness or disability, as the groups can often offer a variety of ways to solve problems. Should you need help, you will certainly find the right contact person here.
