Work and Occupational Rehabilitation
Part of the v. Bodelschwingh Foundation Bethel is the scheme ‘proWerk’. It has the task of providing people with disabilities, who can’t or can’t yet access the mainstream job market, with occupational rehabilitation in the work field of the foundation. This enables them to participate as professionals in society.
Individuals with disabilities and persons with mental or social impairments as well, will discover opportunities in the Bethel Workshops for training, employment and rehabilitation. Specialized integration services place people with disabilities on the general job market. Long-term unemployed persons may participate in occupational qualification programs in our workshops.
Bethel assumes a special role in assisting persons with epilepsy via its special rehabilitation hospital and its vocational training center. The vocational training center is the only facility that has specialized in training younger persons with epilepsy. Disabled persons and individuals with mental illnesses are also being admitted to the center.
Bethel and its range of services for work and occupational rehabilitation is present in the federal states of North Rhine-Westphalia, Lower Saxony, Bremen, Berlin and Brandenburg.
