In the summer of 2019, the first edition of a Social Pathways Guide was published for the first time, providing information for the City of Salzburg. It resembles a city map that serves as a guide for people facing financial and social emergencies. The Social Pathways Guide provides basic information on legal questions, on entitlements that may support people facing difficult situations, and on places that offer help without bureaucratic thresholds. The booklet thematically lists numerous counseling service centers and social institutions, providing contact addresses and phone numbers as well as information on the best ways to reach the respective institutions.
The booklet is free of charge. It is available at official and independent institutions that offer support and guidance, and you can order a copy from us by sending an email to (firstname.lastname@example.org). It is also available as a PDF-file.
The Social Pathways Guide is published by the ifz, the Centre for Ethics and Poverty Research ((CEPR)) ), as well as unicum:mensch and the Salzburg-branch of the Chamber for Workers and Employees. The two latter organizations also support the project financially, along, together with other sponsors.
