Parish social work

Each of the eight Catholic parishes in Winterthur provides a social service: tangible assistance and professional support for multiple aspects of daily life. You can find your parish using the parish search.
Consultation is free of charge and is available to everyone, regardless of age, religion or nationality.

Social workers are bound to maintain professional discretion. Parish social work is part of the Christian service and is Gospel-oriented. 
The parish social workers place people and their concerns at the heart of what they do, based on the fundamental principle of the "preferential option for the poor, disadvantaged and marginalised", and are committed to the equality and dignity of all people.
