Lebenshilfe Erlangen

Höfner are proud to support Lebenshilfe Erlangen. 

Lebenshilfe, starting as a local association, was the first in Bavaria. Lebenshilfe Erlangen eV wants to help people with intellectual disabilities and their families to lead a normal life, from childhood to old age. 

The mission and purpose of the organization is the development and promotion of all activities and facilities that form a support for people with intellectual disabilities of all ages. We also work for a better understanding of the particular problems of people with intellectual disabilities in public. 

Lebenshilfe Erlangen eV actively represents the interests of people with intellectual disabilities and their families. It is an association of stakeholders, parents, relatives, friends and supporters. The self-help concept has become increasingly important. 

In our work we are guided by the following principles:

  • People with intellectual disabilities are just like everybody else - both the same and different.
  • People with intellectual disabilities have the same rights as all other citizens.
  • People with intellectual disabilities have the same basic needs as everyone else.
  • To make a living like everyone else, people with an intellectual disability need understanding people and a society that does not hinder them by exclusion.

People with learning disabilities need special assistance in all aspects of life - all of us.
